Overview

Between 1950 and 1967, the Amadeus Quartet recorded almost all of the string quartets of Ludwig van Beethoven at the Berlin RIAS studios, and Audite's first volume in a series of the group's recordings documents its intensive approach to this core repertoire. (No recording from the period exists of the "String Quartet No. 10 in E flat major, Harp," but the "String Quintet in C major, Storm," is provided here as a bonus.) This seven-CD trimline box set reveals not only the Amadeus Quartet's maturation as an ensemble and its deepening commitment to Beethoven's music, but also the ongoing development of recording technology, noticeable in the improvements of the analog sound of the original masters. Even though Audite's remastering produces clean and nuanced audio, these are still historic recordings that have a rather small, closed-in sound, so this set is mostly recommended for fans of the Amadeus Quartet and specialists in important chamber music recordings.
