Notes & Reviews:

"This CD is the final instalment of the Cleveland Beethoven cycle; it also marks the quartet's swansong. It was recorded in December 1995, just before their farewell concert, and I'm happy to report that they finished on top form...Most of Beethoven's emotional states...are powerfully communicated: in the finale of Op. 131 a wonderful range of sonorities - rich, forceful, delicate - is the vehicle for the unfolding of a tragic drama...irresistible." -DD, Gramophone
