Notes & Reviews:

The New Collectors Edition (original US release 3/30/2010) continues with ten new releases, many of which are appearing at budget price for the first time. These classic performances are truly the cream of the crop and the definitive recordings every collector should have. The Mt. Everest of the string quartet canon is here conquered by the Emerson String Quartet in a set that includes Grammy-award winning recordings.

"Fresh and resplendent... expectedly vital and virtuosic" -The New York Times

"A cycle that's never less than superb." -Stereophile

"They continually offer new insights into some endlessly enthralling music. Do hear them." -Gramophone
