Excellent performances and recording,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Schubert: Death & the Maiden (Audio CD)
The Takacs Quartet has been praised for its many recordings recently and this Schubert album is a continuation of this quartet's excellence. The Hyperion recording (to say nothing of the extraordinary painting chosen for the packaging - someone at the company must have a hotline to owners of risque Nineteenth and early Twentieth century graphic art) is outstandingly good. Anyone looking for a modern recording to add to other performances, such as the classic accounts by Busch Quartet, the Budapest Quartet or the Italian Quartet, can be confidently directed towards this cd. Highly recommended.
