Alban Berg Quartett: Beethoven: The Complete String Quartets (1989 Live recordings)

1. Product Details

The members of the Alban Berg Quartett learned and refined their art at the very heart of the Viennese musical tradition. They have recorded twice Beethoven's Complete String Quartets, the first time in studio from 1978 to 1983 at the Evangelische Kirche in Seon (Switzerland), and the second time at concerts in June 1989, at the Mozart-Saal of the Konzerthaus in Vienna (Austria). This second version is offered for the very first time in a vinyl clamshell box and as a limited edition. In these transcendent live performances, the ABQ rise to the challenge of the complex and ambitious works that stand at the summit of the chamber repertoire. To their trademark Polish, finesse and intellectual penetration, the ABQ adds, where appropriate, a wildness and dangerous energy that is both exciting and characteristically Beethovenian.
