Discussion: Beethoven: String Quartets, Vol. 3 - Quartetto di Cremona

This latest release maintains the same high performance and audio standards as the first two. They have been coached by members of Quartetto Italiano and the Alban Berg Quartet--I'd say their approach combines elements of both of those ensembles. They have the poetic/ethereal elements of the QI and the drive/intensity of the ABQ. I also like the mix of periods rather than releasing a disc devoted to each one.

Hi John, are you able to say how they compare to the Tokyo, Fine Arts (op. 18), Fy Street (vs) and the Prazak (compl.) on SACD and if poss. the Auryn on DVDAudio? Also, how is Audite's sound on these:- I find it generally mid res only, and very close. Cheers, paul s

They are more aggressive than the Tokyo--closer to the Prazak. The sound is very close and is 44/24 res. Pure DSD would give them a warmer tone, but I like their interpretations very much.
