More details

The Quartetto Italiano is regarded as one of the finest string quartets of the twentieth century. The ensemble’s repertory was broad, and they recorded a great deal in the studio, which makes these rare live performances from 1965 all the more valuable. Performed in the Royal Festival Hall and recorded by the BBC, they are in excellent stereo sound and issued here on CD for the very first time.

    “Recorded at the group's peak in London in 1965. The superb Beethoven performance is a vital key to the group's Philips studio cycle, which began with the piece shortly after this recital. Good sound, well-captured by BBC engineers in front of a warlmy appreciative audience.”
