LUDWIG VAN BEETHOVEN - STRING QUARTETS


LUDWIG VAN BEETHOVEN - STRING QUARTETS (Complete) - TALICH STRING QUARTET -
7 CD SET - Calliope 3633/9


At 7 CDs for the price of 3, this multi-award winning set of Beethoven's quartets is a must-have, not only because it's a bargain, but also because it is worthy of all the awards it has received over the years.

The Talich are adept at bringing out the music's meaning more so than other ensembles and always keep a perfect balance between the instruments without spotlighting one or the other unless the music dictates it. Their concentration is so that they never lose sense of where the music is going, and deliver style and depth all in one. Highly recommended!
