Notes and Editorial Reviews

Before signing with EMI and recording all of Mozart String Quartets at least once and often twice, the Alban Berg Quartet recorded nearly half of them first for Teldec and many regard them still as their freshest and most vital performances. This four CD budget box is an outstanding bargain and all unfamiliar with their earlier performances and who simply treasure these quartets are strongly encouraged to give this set a listen.
