Janácek Quartet: Janácek Quartet: Complete Recordings on Deutsche Grammophon
This set is an object lesson in quality quartet playing, phrasing 'as one' most notably in the two DG Dvorák recordings, whether in Op 51, with its folk-like resonances, or the symphonic-style arguments in the first movement of Op 105. Both are more live-sounding than anything else in the collection, real performances that just happened to have been recorded. They're among the brightest gems in a collection that shouldn't be missed. Part of DG's Original Masters series.
