This review is from: Schubert: String Quartets (DG Collectors Edition) (Audio CD)
This was my favourite version of the Schubert Quartets since it appeared as a box set of LPs. The Melos Quartet have a lovely tone and coming from DGG the sound quality is excellent - smooth and beautifully balanced. All 15 quartets are in this 6 CD set, including the two Quartet Movements in c minor. Each quartet is complete on the respective CD - no work is broken between CDs. Schubert's melodies are so appealing that this would make an excellent introduction to chamber music for those not familiar with the genre.

The playing is superb and gets every nuance out of Schubert's music. The CDs are well packaged and are great to keep in the car to play whilst you explore the Schubert's SQs - my only disappointment was that not all the quartets contain the same genius level of writing of the set containing Rosamunde or Death and the Maiden.
