4.0 out of 5 stars Solid, Enjoyable Beethoven Quartet Rendition 17 Mar 2000
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
I rate this CD set not as a professional music critic, but as a former violin/viola player who loves chamber music. I find this CD set and the others in the series (Early and Middle Quartets) to be quite satsfying for listening. The Julliard Quartet performs with a full, rich tone and the recording quality is excellent. The CD's were given to me as a gift, but I would not hesitate to purchase the Julliard rendition of the Beethoven Quartet's for myself. Two criticisms: the quality of presentation does vary. The recording of the middle quartets is not as good as the early and late quartets, in my opinion. Also, I find portions of the Grosse Fugue to be too choppy and technical. I rate this with four stars because I feel it is an excellent recording, but not perfect.

5.0 out of 5 stars The other side of the late quartets 10 Jan 2013
By D. R. Lunsford - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
The defacto standard in performance of these wonderful pieces is the late 1960s recording by the Guarneri Quartet on RCA (still availabale on Red Seal and highly recommended). Their lush tone and perfect intonation is well suited to the spiritual heights of these most spiritual of all works. Still..

Beethoven was a growling man, and sometimes you need to dig in. That's where the Julliard Quartet shines - you can practically hear the rosin sizzling. They are always on the beat and in time, their playing is lean and athletic, and the performance here of Op. 127 is even better than the Guarneri's work. These two sets make perfect bookends - different looks on the same works, both of which would make Beethoven proud.
5.0 out of 5 stars Unique milestone 23 July 2014
By S. Dijkstra - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Never have I heard the extraordinary and even 'strange' or 'otherworldly' character of the late Beethoven string quartets better than in the performance of the Julliard Quartet. They perfectly caption what could not be better described then as the revolution in the writing of string quartets that these late quartets represent. One could even say that some passages lay a bomb under the expectations of contemporary listereners and even now could almost shock you. So powerful and profound is this music while only using the modest means of four string instruments. Away with civilised chitchat, away with certainty! Here comes Beethoven!

Highly, highly reccomended. Recording techniques may have bettered afterwards (relative to your taste) but this performance has a unique character and quality that are nowhere else to be found (imho)

An outstanding recording of some of the finest quartet music ever written! I purchased this as a gift for my mother and now can't wait to treat myself to the same recording!

5.0 out of 5 stars The Juilliard String Quartet 's Beethoven 5 Mar 2005
By Stephen E. Assey - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
I have lived with the Juilliard's Beethoven String Quartets for over 30 years. I had the LP version of the complete Quartets from the 70's. I updated to all 3 CD sets (Early, Middle, & Late) from the 80's. With the Juilliard, you do not get surface polish or detached athleticism. What you do get is real flesh & blood musicians mining deep into Beethoven's soul. No wonder Grammaphone rarely acknowledges the Juilliards. They may be less "civilized" than the string quartets of Europe, however, the Juilliards find the very essence of Beethoven.
