    My favourite string quartets are Beethoven's No. 9 and Mozart's No. 17, closely followed by any and all of Beethoven's late quartets (especially No. 15).

    Almost three years later, and I recognize some of these. Progress.

    Yes and I think it's a good trio and that set from Arditti is good thoughout. Strangely enough I was listening to Tetras just a couple of days ago.

    Oh my god, I see I've just replied to an ancient post and I can't delete it.

    The Trout, by need-I-really-name-who.
    Intimate Letters, by Janacek.

    Those two are probably my favorites. At least, they are right now.

    Favourite: Mozart's "Hunt" quartet - sheer musical sunshine.

    Dislike: Dohnanyi's second quartet. I love Dohnanyi's piano music but cannot get on with this piece.

    Solo - Bach E major partita for violin, I've muddled through the whole thing myself. I can't get enough of it.

    Duo - Beethoven 5th violin sonata, Spring. I picked this because I've played it myself. Though there are a lot to choose from here.

    Trio - Shostakovich Piano Trio no 2 Haunting, brilliant. I heard it live many years ago, it sent chills down my spine.

    Quartet - Debussy Quartet, though so many to choose from. Ask me again sometime later and I'll give you a different quartet.

    Quintet - Schubert Quintet in C, no contest.

    Sextet - Schönberg Verklärte Nacht

    Septet - Sorry, no choice

    Octet - Mendelssohn

    Nonet - Golijov Last Round is well worth listening to. I heard it live a couple of years ago, terrific. And now I have a recording.
