Beethoven String Quartets, Op. 18, Nos. 5 & 6, Quatour Mosaïques. Astree 8541

The Quatuor Mosaïques is the class act among chamber ensembles that play on authentic instruments. In this 1994 recording they turned their attention to the quartets of Beethoven, with absolutely ravishing results. Elegance and expressive point are the watchwords in these accounts, which are tossed off with a combination of brilliance and tonal beauty that, until these
Read more players came along, seemed beyond the reach of the period-instrument brigade. The fun is captured on a superbly engineered recording, with remarkable presence and warmth. – Ted Libbey, author of The NPR Guide to Building a Classical CD Collection. Read less
