 Still the best July 16, 2016 By Robert C. (Ashfield, MA) See All My Reviews "The Budapest String Quartet has always been my standard of excellence. These performances, with their beautiful tone and perfect interpretation confirm that view." Report Abuse
 A Never Ending Play December 15, 2015 By Michel Coron (Pointe-claire, Quebec) See All My Reviews "The first time we hear an interpretation is sometimes a crucial encounter. The Haydn Quartets with the Budapest I heard for the first time in the '50 were really "un coup de coeur". Mainly the K.421 which surely is the first "romantic¨musical piece ever heard. How beautifully it is with the Budapest Quartet. In hearing again on today, I am again convinced it is the best interpretation of this quartet and also the others. Really great for such a bargain price. O.K. Sound is not as Alban Berg Quartet but... Budapest is like those Greek monuments. They touched the heaven in our heart." Report Abuse
