Notes & Reviews:

"...Partly as a result of these accounts [produced between 1940 and 45] the Budapest became as strongly associated with the Beethoven quartets as Artur Schnabel had with the composer's piano sonatas...far more than the better-known cycle of the 50s, these reissues document traits that made the Budapest's Beethoven compelling...Particularly welcome are ops. 59/3, 127, 135, and 29, here making their first extended-pl appearances...these releases are essential." -Frank, Fanfare
