I've always thought Juilliard's account is overplayed and maybe too restless.

Did you know that Mahler transcribed this for string orchestra? There is a good Welser-Möst.

I also don't like the Juilliard much either. As for the Mahler version, here's a nice rendition.

Can someone show me how to edit hyperlinks? Not sure what it's even called, changing link to a word or sentence.

The Leipzig Quartet on MDG is an excellent choice, I believe. A terrific ensemble who plays extremely well; I've never heard a truly bad recording by them. Can't go wrong with the whole set of Schubert quartets that they do, as well.
"Tis said, that art is long, and life but fleeting:—Nay; life is long, and brief the span of art; If e're her breath vouchsafes with gods a meeting, A moment's favor 'tis of which we've had a part." -Beethoven - Conversation Book, March 1820
