Notes & Reviews:

Since the beginning of their career, the Amadeus Quartet regularly came to make recordings at the RIAS studios in Berlin. Thus a representative cross-section of the ensemble's repertoire came into being in the archive there and will be released by Audite in six volumes. At the beginning of this new series is the (almost) complete Beethoven cycle, recorded during the years from 1950-1967 and now available to the public for the first time. These recordings are distinguished for the fact that each movement of a work is recorded in one continuous take.

American Record Guide, March/April 2014
The Amadeus Quartet recorded this Beethoven cycle in RIAS broadcasts in the 1950s and 60s, at the peak of their long career. This is all to the good if you prefer warmly emotional performances. The recorded sound is also warm and appealing.
