Quote from: San Antone on January 13, 2022, 06:31:04 PMBARTÓK String Quartets - Ragazze QuartetThe latest cycle I've got - and it is very good. To quote Gramophone, "extremely well-focused and well recorded performances," in a review of Vol. 1. Vol. 2 is just as good.
Quote from: SonicMan46 on February 18, 2022, 07:19:47 AMReading back through this thread, absolutely amazing how many sets are available w/ quartets often re-recording! For me, just the Emersons and a Keller replacement, the Alexander SQ which also includes the Kodaly SQs on a total of 3 discs - for those interested or just getting into these works, reviews attached of the Alexanders (2 outstanding and 1 'mediocre' rating from AllMusic although the comments don't seem to warrant a 3/5*?).

Quote from: Todd on February 18, 2022, 05:51:27 PMMy current faves are Diotima, Ragazze, Takacs 2, and Tokyo 1. Each sounds quite distinctive, showing that a lot of variation can be had in this music.

Quote from: Klaze on February 20, 2022, 02:00:11 PMSaw the Ragazze Q play all 6 quartets live today. Originally planned across 2 separate dates, one concert had to be rescheduled and they decided to play them all on one day. What a feat to perform, and amazing to hear and see. I snapped up the recording as well, happy to see they have been well received and not surprised based on this live performance
Quote from: SonicMan46 on February 20, 2022, 03:37:25 PMThanks - must have been a great experience! On Spotify, I listened to the Ragazze Quartet completely and also in a playlist of SQs 1 & 3 back-to-back w/ my two sets (Emersons & Alexanders, in a recent post above) - I can appreciate them all and am still happy w/ what I own, BUT if Channel Classics decides to package the two discs together in a double slim jewel box at a reduced price, then I'll certainly make a purchase.

Quote from: hvbias on February 20, 2022, 04:40:11 PMThat must have been great. I think they have the best complete cycle of this century, even possibly as good as Arcanto's stunning interpretation of string quartet 5 and definitely as fine as Arcanto in 6. I looked up where they are performing, and that is a lot of dates only in Netherlands
Quote from: Mandryka on March 06, 2015, 10:10:56 PMa cycle from Quarteto Classico and one from the Rudi Mahall Quartet (apart from 4.)
