  • This unique recording of the Beethoven string quartets made from 1951 to 1952 for Columbia has for the first time been entirely edited for CD. These digital remasterings enable the listener to hear the Budapest Quartet at the peak of its sound and performing a repertoire on which it so famously made its mark. Balance of tonality, intensity of expression, precise phrasing: the following collection is symbolic of the qualities of an ensemble that, during the 1950s, left behind a discography that continues to inspire musicians and listeners today.

  • "The quality of the transfers is excellent and I'd say that this set is a definite must-have for anyone even remotely interested in the art of string quartet playing." Rob Cowan, Gramophone, December 2006
