Notes & Reviews:

Beethoven's late string quartets rank among the glories of the string quartet literature. The arrangements heard herein were accomplished by violinist Terje Tonnesen. Mr. Tonnesen leads the Camerata Nordica on these recordings. Hybrid 5.0 Surround Sound Super Audio CD

American Record Guide, July/August 2014
These are arrangements for string orchestra by Tonneson of Beethoven's late quartets. The performances are very well played and recorded. They are powerful and dramatic.

Gramophone Magazine, August 2014
The grander Beethoven's ambition, the better Tønnesen's arrangement...Opp 130, 131 and 132 fast-track us to the heart of the matter.
