Spanning repertoire from the Classical to the contemporary and some 30 years of the Alban Berg Quartett’s career, these recordings evince the achievement of an ensemble whose very name honours both the tradition and innovative musical spirit of its home city, Vienna. Founded in 1970, it soon became recognised as one of the defining quartets of the 20th century and went on to make two landmark recordings of the complete Beethoven cycle, the first in the studio, the second live at Vienna’s Konzerthaus (presented here in both CD and DVD versions). This 70-disc set, which in addition features DVDs of
Read more Schubert and a live performance in St Petersburg, also documents the Alban Berg Quartett’s collaborations with such artists as Sabine Meyer, Elisabeth Leonskaja, Alfred Brendel, Rudolf Buchbinder and Philippe Entremont.

2020 marks the 50th anniversary of the Alban Berg Quartett.

Founded in 1970, when it became Vienna’s first full-time string quartet, the Alban Berg Quartett remained active until 2008. From 1981 it retained the same line-up of players for some 25 years: Günter Pichler, Gerhard Schulz, Thomas Kakuska, Valentin Erben.

This 70-disc set (62 CDs + 8 DVDs) is the most ambitious and comprehensive ever to be dedicated to a string quartet. It comprises the Alban Berg Quartet’s entire recorded catalogue – originally recorded for Teldec and EMI between 1974 and 2003 and now on Warner Classics. The discs are presented in their original cover designs.

The set, which covers more than 100 works by 28 composers, ranges from the Classical period to the late 20th century. While there is a particular emphasis on the Austro-German masters (Mozart, Haydn, Beethoven Schubert, Mendelssohn, Brahms), it includes music by major Czech, Hungarian, Russian and French composers, a number of works by composers contemporary with the Alban Berg Quartett, and even a disc of tango. Beyond the quartet repertoire the set offers quintets and sextets, for which the Alban Berg Quartett is joined by celebrated collaborators.

The centrepieces of the collection are two versions of the complete Beethoven quartets; the first was recorded in the studio between 1978 and 1983 and the second was recorded in 1989 at concerts in Vienna. Also present in two different versions are Mozart’s quartets 14-23, recorded both for Teldec (1975-78) and for EMI (1986-90).

The set includes a first release on CD: the String Quartet No 1 ‘Mobile’ by the Polish-born composer Roman Haubenstock-Ramati (1919–1994)
