Ensemble Made in Canada enchants in Mozart and Brahms debut
The impressive, elegant interpretations of piano quartets by Mozart and Johannes Brahms on Ensemble Made in Canada’s debut album is proof that DIY recording can result in big-label quality. The Mozart is balanced, clear, delicate yet still filled with colour and energy…The Made in Canadians get it just right, with Mercer and Park anchoring Brahms’ all-important lower timbres confidently, and the two higher-pitched instruments adding the spark of life without ever sounding strident…Both pieces in their very different ways reveal new layers of beauty with each listen – and the fine performances by Ensemble Made in Canada make it all the more tempting to do just that.”
