5 of 7 people found the following review helpful By a nice guy on 17 Nov. 2011
There is not a doubt in my mind that few other quartets have played these works with such intensity of feeling as this one manages to do. The players perform together as a single organism, the crescendi, alterations in tempo, pizzicato, sensitivity of feeling... are truly mind boggling.
I particularly recommend this recording if;
1) you're a drug addict and you want to save money. The effect of listening to any of quartets 2 - 5 is more intense and the after effects will last much longer than any trip.
2) if you're in a savage mood. Take it out with Bartok.
3) if you're in a psychotic mood. No matter how insane you're feeling, these pieces are more insane.

This is a case where the classic recording really can't be beaten. Bravo, Tokyo String Quartet.
