The new cds arrived!






Do you already own other recording(s) of the Op. 18 set for comparison purposes? 

Let me know what you think.

I’m sure I must but I’ll have to wait until after Thanksgiving to check for cds to do an apples to apples.

I know I have the Guarneri Quartet,  The Six Early Quartets (Opus 18), on vinyl. As well as the Budapest on vinyl as below, but that’s more apples to oranges.

I must say I’m really enjoying the Quatour Mosaiques.

My only point of comparison really is the Smithson String Quartet on period instruments from an old Deutsch Harmonia Mundi set that somehow got lost in the confusion of my last move about 11 years ago. 

The Mosaiques are a level or two above the SSQ.

“Music “says” things about the world, but in specifically musical terms. Any attempt to reproduce these musical statements “in our own words” is necessarily doomed to failure. We cannot isolate the truth contained in a piece of music; for it is a beauty-truth and inseparable from its partner. The best we can do is to indicate in the most general terms the nature of the musical beauty-truth under consideration and to refer curious truth-seekers to the original. Thus, the introduction to the Benedictus in the Missa Solemnis is a statement about the blessedness that is at the heart of things. But this is about as far as “our words” will take us. If we were to start describing in our “own words” exactly what Beethoven felt about this blessedness, how he conceived it, what he thought its nature to be, we should very soon find ourselves writing lyrical nonsense… Only music, and only Beethoven’s music, and only this particular music of Beethoven, can tell us with any precision what Beethoven’s conception of the blessedness at the heart of things actually was. If we want to know, we must listen — on a still June night, by preference, with the breathing of the invisible sea for background to the music and the scent of lime trees drifting through the darkness, like some exquisite soft harmony apprehended by another sense.”
