Wonderful recording of early Beethoven. The influence of Haydn comes through.

5.0 out of 5 stars Get them while they are cheap! 5 April 2008
By Scott E. Peterman - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
When it comes to Beethoven, the Tokyo Quartet is superb and their newest traversal of these masterpieces is no exception. I hesitated to give my review of these recordings since the price seems to rise whenever glowing reviews are posted, but I couldn't resist.

While maintaining the high standards of its first set, the Tokyos have given us a more thoughtful, perhaps even a more beautiful traversal than its first set. The recordings are more detailed with much less "bloom" than the RCA set, and I found that an increase in the bass adjustment of my receiver produced fine results. Indeed, it is one of the finest recordings of performances of these pieces that are currently available.

This set, along with the Op.59 set, is offered at very reasonable prices, and I hope they stay that way. Cheaper, better recorded, and better performed than the Takacs set, I find this set to be indispensible for any lover of these works. I look forward with great anticipation to the Tokyo's recordings of the late quartets.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Second Choice that is Still Tops 9 Feb. 2013
By J. R. Trtek - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
The Tokyo Quartet's traversal of the Beethoven quartets in these past few years has been a joy to share, and in these renditions of the Op. 18 set the ensemble shines magnificently. While I don't think it's necessarily the best of the the installments in the full cycle, these are very fine performances nonetheless -- the members seem very attuned to one another, and there's a true unity in these recordings -- each movement's sections, the movements of a given quartet, and the all six compositions together: There's synergy at all levels. I have to confess that recently I have been completely won over by the original instrument versions of these quartets by Quatuor Mosaiques -- it's not that the Tokyo Quartet is bad, but simply that the sound of the Mosaiques' strings is so enchanting to my layman's ears. Still, for modern instrument recordings of these works, I still vote Tokyo all the way, and certainly endorse their entire Beethoven cycle. Recommended.

I love the Tokyo String Quartet. I would listen to them playing anything; of course there is nothing like their live performances.
