5.0 out of 5 stars A Divine Compilation of the Lindsays and Schubert, 27 Feb 2011
As an American with great love for the Lindsay Quartet, I was quite sad trying to sort through the used market of ASVs 1980s releases, most of which have long since been deleted from the catalog. I wistfully stared at the old ASV website, wishing the classical music market wasn't being swallowed up by a few giant corporate conglomerates. The Lindsay releases, then, must be like the equivalent to the golden ark hiding in the giant warehouse of government crates.

Who knows how long this box will be available? I'm not a big fan of digital downloads, be it my terrible track record with computers. There's something wonderful about the tangible record/CD. Maybe it's something about the circular shape? Circles bear some resemblance to music in their mystical beauty, after all. 4CDs, 3 hours and forty-six minutes of music. Quartets 8, 12, 13, 14, 15, and the divine string quintet in C, written weeks before his death. Jump on this deal before something else happens to bury the ark completely out of reach.
