Notes & Reviews:

Founded in 1947, the Amadeus Quartet dominated the British chamber music scene for over 40 years. The quartet was renowned for its impeccable ensemble playing as well as sensitive interpretation. Particularly well known for performances of the Viennese Classics, the ensemble's core repertoire included all three works on this DVD, performed here with great warmth and exuberance. Norbert Brainin's standard answer to how the Amadeus Quartet was able to reach such great mastery of interpretation was that they 'simply listened into the music - again and again'. This is the first DVD release of this material.
