    Mozart: String Quintet No. 5 in D major, K 593:

    with Milton Katims: rec 1946 [2V=EO]; CD reissue Sony SM3K-46527.
    with Walter Trampler: stereo rec 1965-1966 [2V=AS]; LP Col D3S-747; CD reissue Sony CSCR 8346.

    ...

    As I said earlier, the Grumiaux version is the best that I have.
    That information is incorrect (bolded).

    The mono recording of k593 with trampler I possess on and early 60s Phlips was rec 1957 ( it states this on the LP label ). The BQ did record the mozart quintets in the mid 60s in stereo and this is what the Wikipedia entry refers to - but it is an incomplete discog as it fails to acknowledge the 1957 mono recordings.

    Default 1978 Odyssey Records LP has contradictory information.

    I recently bought an Odyssey box set from 1978 that has very contradictory information on the record labels and back cover of the box. The back of the box only states Alexander Schneider as the second violinist and states that all of the Mozart viola quintets are recordings from the mid-1950's. However, the labels have very different information. First of all, four performances have either Jac Gorodetzky or Edgar Ortenberg as second violinist. These had to occur in the 1940's, based on other information I consulted, so the information about only A. Schneider and the mid-1950's date only applies to one or two of the six quintets.

    Archive.org has other complete recordings of the same quintets performed by the Budapest String Quartet and issued on the Columbia label, rather than Odyssey. I'm now trying to figure out the dates and performers. Some of the timings are very different that the Odyssey 1978 re-issue I referred to above. This all gets very hard to unravel.

    I finally figured out the "mystery". The Odyssey box of 1978 has the correct information on each of the labels and on the runouts but the back of the box has some major errors: the second violinist and violist plus the years of performance and the erroneous statement that the Odyssey release is identical to the previous Columbia LP. which it's not. The later Sony CD (with the Mozart Haydn quartets plus the viola quintets) has the same quintet performances as the Odyssey 1978 LP, by the way.

    Like Jos, I have the period Hausmusik recording which I think is outstanding. The clarity of recorded sound and the inner detail of this one are joyful. Monica Huggett's playing, throughout, is simply wonderful.
