Dvorak's Quartets are very much like Schubert's, in that the later they get, the exponentially greater they become! Yeah, there's some decent music in all of the earlier quartets, but some condensing of certain movements would have made them significantly better.

No.10 onwards are superb (and I'd add the Cypresses in to the mix too, both chronologically and in terms of quality!)
