Product Description

Product Description

Schumann imbues his string quartets with an expressive aspect which is found nowhere else in his output, revealing his secret garden as well as what might be the calmer part of his inner self. His Opus 41 also bears the double stamp of overflow and restraint, and is without doubt one for the most highly developed examples of symbiosis between the expressive needs of romanticism and the formal demands of writing for sixteen strings.

5.0 out of 5 stars Recommended! 8 Jan 2013
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
This is a very good recording: wonderfully detailed sound quality, luninous playing, and great sense of the broad architectural unity of Schumann's 3 string quartet masterpieces forming a cycle. Excellent sleeve notes as well. Warmly recommended!

5.0 out of 5 stars A Top Choice, especially for All Three Quartets 24 Jan 2013
By J. R. Trtek - Published on
Format:Audio CD
Although, to be honest, I somewhat prefer the Zehetmair Quartet's recordings of Schumann's Quartets Nos. 1 and 3 on the ECM label, their disc omits the No. 2, and these performances by Quatuor Ysaye are so much on the same general level of excellence that if I have to make a choice between the two I'll pick this album any day for its inclusion of all three of the composer's quartets. The sound is excellent and this ensemble truly makes these Schumann works come alive for me as no other has, except of course for the Zehetmairs. Highly recommended.
