The fifth CD boxed set, Vol. V, from the series The RIAS Amadeus Quartet Recordings is dedicated to nineteenth-century Romantic composers. This six-volume edition presents exclusively first releases on CD. The Amadeus Quartet included a wider repertoire in the broadcasting studio than in the recording studio. Works by Edvard Grieg and Robert Schumann interpreted by the Amadeus Quartet can be heard here for the first time on CD. And five works in this edition represent novel repertoire that the Amadeus Quartet never recorded on LP: Dvorák's Piano Quintet in A Major, Op. 81, Grieg's String Quartet in G Minor, Op. 27, Mendelssohn's String Quartet in E-flat Major, Op. 12, as well as Schumann's String Quartet in A Major, Op. 41, No. 3 and Piano Quintet in E-flat Major, Op. 44.
Chronos Mundi was an apparently little-known Brazilian trio that released just the one album, Luz e Trevas, in 1999. This band admits influences of Pink Floyd, Yes, Emerson, Lake & Palmer, King Crimson, Premiata Forneria Marconi, Jade Warrior and Genesis. They perform a refined, colourful and lyrical Progressive sung in Portuguese and English but there aren't many vocals. Their music has a largely pastoral feel and is highly melodic, much in the tradition of the many fine symphonic bands from Brazil.
