    Great! I truly appreciate the downloads. I well into them and listening on my Sennheiser headphones. Truly faultless transfer, good work!
    I love that 70's /80's sound quality. Warm and personal. I know The Bach Guild has used some CQ recordings in their box sets. Maybe these will be picked up sometime and redistributed. They need to be heard.
    I don't live in the past,
    there's no future in it.

    Well I was going to get both of those Kodály Quartet CDs, but it appears someone has taken the one with the B-flat major quartet and the Große Fuge. Went ahead and bought the other one, with op.131 and 135. Listening now to op.135. Really good performance in great sound. I like this group. Thanks for the recommendation, Merl and Itullian.

    ^This Kodály Quartet is no joke! Naxos has outdone themselves again. I will be seeking out further entries in their Beethoven quartets cycle. Beautiful production!!

    This is a fine set, exceptionally well-recorded, beautifully articulate and played immaculately but, for me, the Goldners don't dig in quite hard enough in the middle and especially late quartets. Certainly a super cycle but a little too polite for my tastes. The early quartets are in incredibly impressive, though. I just wanted a little more grit as the cycle went on. Highly recommended, though.
