Notes & Reviews:

  • The second of six volumes featuring the Amadeus Quartet's lesser-known RIAS radio recordings from the 1950's and 1960's.
  • The Amadeus Quartet was considered by many the finest string quartet ensemble of the post-World War II era.
  • This double-disc set encompasses five Franz Schubert's quartets, including 'Death and the Maiden, D. 810 and the great G major Quartet, D 887 feature here, in recordings spanning a fifteen year period.

American Record Guide, May/June 2014
This is a valuable issue, particularly if you remember the Amadeus fondly and wish to hear their early playing. The honesty and purity of their playing gave me great pleasure, so if your taste runs to historical performance, take a look at this or some of the other volumes from Audite.
