EMI Classics relaunches the popular EMI Master Series: The definitive series of great classical music from a trove of the most notable and revered classical recordings ever made. Available on CD and for digital download, this newly repackaged installment of 10 master celebrates EMI Classics' greatest artists, including Maria Callas, Nigel Kennedy and Itzhak Perlman. All performances in this series were recorded, mastered, or a re-mastered at the internationally renowned Abbey Road Studios in London.

Gramophone
Both works are marvelously played and beautifully recorded... the Quartet's playing is breathtaking in terms of tonal blend, ensemble and intonation.

BBC Music Magazine, June 2013
A reminder of the Alban Berg's redefining of modern quartet virtuosity and precision. Schubert's dark side is a shade underplaying here, but these are magnificent readings.

MusicWeb International, 11th June 2013
The Alban Berg concentrate on control and refinement occasionally at the expense of the passionate expression...Although these are well performed everything seems rather too buttoned up.
