Notes & Reviews:

This album is part of a series of twenty must-have titles from the Warner Classics catalog, featuring their original and well-known iconic covers. The name of the Alban Berg Quartet honors the continuity and vigor of a musical tradition spanning three centuries. This box, featuring both live and studio recordings, gathers together eight works by the father of the string quartet, Josef Haydn, and Notturno, composed for the Alban Berg Quartet in 1993 by Luciano Berio, whose modernism is informed by an acute sensitivity to the past.
