Notes & Reviews:

Beethoven's string quartets need no introduction. These recordings, previously issued across six individual releases, are here collected in a box set for less than half the price of the individual discs. The Borodin Quartet equally needs no introduction. It was formed in 1945 in Moscow by the cellist Valentin Berlinsky who, amazingly, was still very much a part of the Quartet when these performances were recorded. 'Classic FM' magazine commented on Volume 2: "This redoubtable Russian group plays with all the powerful, focused tone you'd expect and brings out the entire wealth of Beethoven's colour in these fiery performances."

The Observer
Anyone who doesn't know these masterpieces should, and anyone who does will welcome this eight-disc set by the revered Borodin Quartet...
