Editorial Reviews

Brahms destroyed more string quartets than he permitted to survive, and it's a medium in which he was never fully comfortable. Like Mozart, he tended to overwrite, making his textures thick and heavy in an attempt to maintain absolute equality between the four parts. The Juilliard Quartet understands these works and turns in performances that are strong on rhythm and energy, keeping the textures light and the musical argument moving forward. Add to that an excellent performance of the Clarinet Quintet, and the result is essential listening for fans of this exceptional ensemble. --David Hurwitz

5.0 out of 5 stars A fabuluous recording February 10, 1999
By A Customer
The Juilliard outdoes itself here. This is a measured, thoughtful rendition of Brahms' string quartets (plus a lovely clarinet/strings quintet.) From a technical point of view, the CDs shine...the sound is vivid, immediate...it sounds LIVE. If you like Brahms, you'll love this.

5.0 out of 5 stars Ferocious Playing March 11, 2003
Brahms is another of the many musical geniuses that seemed to populate the Romantic world. He excelled in almost every musical form - voice (solo, choral, accompanied), piano, concerto, symphony and chamber music. The latter is simultaneously both the most complex and cerebral while thoroughly intriguing and entertaining. They are not marked by grand soaring like the symphonies or the quirkiness of the piano works or even the emotion of the requiem.
As concert pieces they are unbeatable, continually melodic, oddly rhymthic, the interplay between the voices directed and modulated to effect. Best of all, there is the bare suppressed tension throughout almost all the movements and this is what a good chamber work must offer - that battle between a barely subdued frenzy and the yearning melody. This is an admirable recording, fully reproducing the composer and his intentions.
The only better setting would be in a small room with the players assembled a few yards away.
