Beethoven: String Quintets

"Magnificent music superbly rendered. This recording of Beethoven´s rarely heard string quintets brings to us the finest music played by highly respected musicians: the Fine Arts Quartet and violist Sharon Gil. The performance of said quintets and of the Fugue Op. 137 are of the best sound quality and superior musicianship, perfectly recorded, so as to carry the listener to the highest level of pleasure. I heartly recommend this exceptional album."

Beethoven: Complete String Quartets Op.18 [Box set]

A fantastic new reading of these oh-so-familiar pieces. It is wonderful to have so many new recordings by the historically great Fine Arts Quartet...This one sports the usual Fine Arts virtues: classical elegance, muscular rhythmic prowess, and sober, realistically projected stylistic congruence...What you will find is sumptuous sound in a superb recorded setting that displays these six magnificent works in about as fine a recording as you are likely to hear. Couple the sound with real inspiration and a studied presentation of these pieces, and this is likely to take first place among almost any collection.
