5.0 out of 5 stars Amazing!, 13 Sept. 2011
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Beethoven: The 'Late' String Quartets (Tokyo String Quartet) (Audio CD)
This is the indispensable version of this music, everything about it is excellent.

Opus 127 evokes that sense that you are standing still but still have that sense of being tilted. Quite ethereal.

Opus 131 has the best version of the Grosse Fugue that I have ever heard, the way this piece pulls a climax that makes sense, out of such apparent chaos, is not to everyone's taste perhaps, but if you like it you will really love it. This track is what made me purchase the CD.

Opus 135 made me laugh when it got to the final moment, I don't know why but it just did somehow.

The playing is impeccable and you can tell they have the very best instruments, my only regret is that multiple repeated playings have worn down the sound quality. Possibly my favourite CD in my collection. Amazing playing, extraordinary pieces, and nobody's ever done them quite like this before. Five stars.

I would suggest as a solution to your problem of loss of sound quality the Acoustic Revive RD-3 Demagnetizer. It makes a definite improvement even to new CDs: wider and deeper soundstage; more precion on high frequencies; more presence on voices and instruments. There are several online reviews.

Thanks for your review. I hate to nit-pick but there's an obvious "typo" which maybe you could correct? The Grosse Fuge Op.133 relates to the Op.130 string quartet as the alternative final movement. It doesn't relate to Op.131 as your reviews suggests.
