The Budapest String Quartet is an outstanding ensemble that began in 1917 and played together, with some variation in personnel for the next 50 years.

IT is one of the greatest string quartets on record.

Musicians on this 1951 album include Joseph Roisman, first violin, 1932-1967; Jac Gorodetzky, second violin, 1932-1933 and 1940-something to 1955; Boris Kroyt, viola, 1936-1967; and Mischa Schneider, cello, 1930-1967.

Not only are the musicians impeccable, but,
since moving to the United States in 1938, the quartet had access to four Stradivari.

Despite the age of this recording (1956), the recording quality is excellent.
The music itself, written between 1798 and 1800, is not as well known as some of Beethoven's other work, but it is absolutely beautiful.

The first LP's 3 quartets feature bright, spirited playing, with added depth on Quartet 3 in D Major of side 1.

Quartet 4 has a more somber and dramatic mood, more like the Beethoven works to which one may be more accustomed.

No. 5 in A Major returns to the spirited, dancelike composition of the first 3 quartets.

The mood is so infectious and rhythmic that one can almost hear the rustling of dancers' clothing.

The final quartet, No. 6 in B-flat Major, returns some of the more weighty motifs. Throughout, the musicians demonstrate tremendous virtuosity and great empathy in the dynamics and pacing.

This is truly exciting music, played by a masterful quartet
