This is one of the great recoridngs of 20th century music. All credit to Brilliant Classics for rescuing them from the DG catalogue. The playing is fiery and accurate, and the recordings are as punchy and assertive as most of the music. From the post-Wagnerian melos of the first Schoenberg quartet op. 7 to the eery suggestions of material in Webern's op. 9 Bagatelles, the LaSalle Quartet play beautifully and idiomatically. But the star of the show is Margaret Price, the soloist in the final two movement's of the second Schoenberg quartet. Price was at the time a rising star who made a point of performing this corner of the repertoire, and her radiant voice makes this difficult music sound sublime. A fantastic set.
