Format: Audio CD
I have listened to CDs of Beethoven's quartets by four different groups: Alban Berg, Julliard, Kodaly, and Cleveland. They are all excellent. However, if the other quartets all deserve five stars out of five, then the Cleveland Quartet deserves a sixth star. All four groups play together seamlessly and capture all of the energy and passion of Beethoven, but the Cleveland Quartet also has an extra touch of lyrical magic, smooth refinement, and coherent unity in the quality of their performance.

I have listened to this CD several times in a row and thoroughly enjoyed it every time. In the allegro movements, such as the first movement of the second Razumovsky quartet, there is a wonderful interaction between the violins playing the melody and the cello that is providing such a strong rhythm, anchoring the melody and, at the same time, seemingly playing in opposition to it; both instruments are very distinct and play both with, and against each other in a perfect blend of harmony and, in the more rapid passages, a flawless tension that conveys a sense of passion and even urgency in the music. The second movement (Molto Adagio: Si Tratta Questo Pezzo Con Molto de Sentimento) is a piece of chamber music heaven played with an exquisite tenderness, creating an ethereal atmosphere that lets the listener savor every note. In fact, the CD booklet states that at least three separate witnesses who knew Beethoven "claimed, in one place or another, that the idea for this movement came to the composer while he was gazing at th enight sky, contemplating the music of the spheres.

After reading the detailed review by classicalfan, I can only add that I agree completely about this CD. I also have greatly enjoyed the Cleveland's CD of #12 and #14. These, I think, are the best of the Cleveland set. The sound is both warm and transparent on both discs. I weould not hesitate to buy either of these. The full set, however, contains several performances that do mot match the excellence of these two CDs.
