Format: CD Achat vérifié
Très belle interprétation, très classique, très fondue, très homogène, de beaux contrastes, une recherche permanente de l'unisson, pas d'individualisme déplacé. Tempi toujours justes.

Bref, de la musique de chambre à l'état pur.

On regrette peut etre juste un léger manque de timbre dans le son des des différents instruments, et parfois un petit côté un petit peu impersonnel - la rançon sans doute de la volonté de na pas faire d'aspérités à quatre?

Au total, je recommande absolument cette version.

Great performances, generally decent sound, problems with track ordering and separation 9 mai 2013
Par Gwac - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: CD
(Note: This review is based on the 1999 release of this material (Beethoven: The Complete String Quartets). Based on the back cover of this box there is no difference in contents from the previous release, besides the packaging. I have upgraded my rating to reflect the excellence of the performances.)

(4.5 of 5 stars)

It may not bear mentioning for most people on this page, but these works are considered to be at the heart of the string quartet repertoire, and chamber music repertoire in general. Personally speaking, the late quartets in particular are some of my favorite compositions in all of music. They offer a singular perspective on the final musical thoughts of Ludwig van Beethoven's life, and seem to transcend time and genre. The quartets as a whole are notable for offering a fairly complete cross-section of Beethoven's progress as a composer while revealing some of his most experimental and personal musical expressions.

Performances: The Alban Berg Quartett approach these work with a Viennese grace that acknowledges the classical roots of Beethoven's music while highlighting the energetic and frequently unsettled nature that define his idiom. In taking this balanced approach they can claim equal success in such distinct movements as the lengthy andante of Op. 131 and the off-kilter vivace of Op. 135. Technically their playing is impeccable, with excellent intonation and disciplined ensemble.

I find myself most drawn to the ABQ's accounts of the early and late quartets. Their middle quartets are very good as well, but for some reason don't quite stand alongside my favorites (see the Takacs, Emerson, Cleveland quartets).

Sound Quality: Sound seems to be a sticking point for this set, which was recorded between 1978 and 1983 - the middle and early groups first (in analogue) and finally the late quartets (in early digital). The early and middle groups were then digitally remastered in 1985. The sound overall is spacious, in the same vein as the Takacs cycle, but with just a bit less clarity of texture - unsurprising given the two decades separating the two cycles. Also, I find that the upper registers (violins especially) can be overrepresented and excessively bright at times, and the sound can get rough at the loudest dynamics. To my ears the late quartets benefit slightly from their later recording date, being a bit clearer and better balanced. In my experience these recordings seem particularly sensitive to speaker/headphone quality - I am much more satisfied with the sound when using my best headphones. Finally, if you listen to MP3s it is a good idea to use a high bit rate when you rip the music. Overall I prefer the sound of more recent recordings (like Takacs, Cleveland, and ESQ) but I still find these recordings quite listenable.

CD Issues: The most irritating things about this set have nothing to do with the recording, but rather with the CDs. First, there are four tracks in the middle quartets in which two movements have been combined into a single track. This was a deliberate decision, as it is reflected in the track list in the booklet, but I can't think of a good rationale for doing this. Also, the order of the quartets may irk those who seek to easily locate a particular quartet. Early, middle and late quartets are jumbled together on each disc, perhaps in an effort to provide a program-like experience. In reality, I don't tend to listen to more than one quartet at a time and so flipping through the discs to find the one I want is an irritation. If you listen primarily to MP3s these problems are easily dealt with using basic software by creating playlists or changing the metadata, and by separating out the combined movements (this can all be done in iTunes). Then, if you plan on listening to CDs, you could burn the quartets in the desired order. For MP3 listeners proficient in iTunes or similar software these quirks will be a minor initial inconvenience, but for others it could present an insurmountable obstacle to enjoying the music.

Price: The last thing to consider about this set is its price, which makes it one of the most inexpensive complete sets of Beethoven's quartets.

Conclusion: If you can come to terms with the obnoxious CD issues and find the sound quality acceptable, the Alban Berg Quartett's Beethoven cycle is a great deal. Frankly, because there are some great modern recordings with better balanced sound, this cycle might not be my first recommendation for someone looking to own only one set of these works. The expensive Takacs set in particular can be seen as major competition, since they have a similarly balanced approach (without the Viennese flavor) and a similar, slightly superior acoustic. The Emerson Quartet set is now priced similarly to this one and provides a more revolutionary, less traditional approach in a closer, crystal clear acoustic. The Cleveland Quartet are not unlike the Emersons in their virtuosity and recorded acoustic but play with somewhat more sensitivity and flexibility. None of this is to diminish at all the quality of the Alban Berg Quartett's performances, which are distinguished for their intellectual and emotional grasp of the music as well as their superb technical execution. I have found that my opinion of this set improves with time, and upon hearing other recordings. In fact, I might venture at this point to name it as my favorite.

Wonderful music, magnificently performed 21 juin 2013
Par Sid Nuncius - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: CD
Beethoven's string quartets contain some of his finest music, in my view. The early Opus 18 quartets retain elements of the classicism of Haydn and Mozart while moving the form into new territory, the wonderful Rasoumovsky Quartets in his middle period have some sublime slow movements and show the real development in Beethoven's music, and the amazing late quartets contain a mixture of the strange, the inspiring and the beautiful as Beethoven's genius reached its final flowering. To have all this in one box is truly wonderful.

The performances by the Alban Berg Quartet are excellent. They date from the early 1980s, were very highly regarded at the time and have aged very well, I think. They are technically excellent, their intonation is flawless and show great insight in interpretation. Very fine cycles have been recorded since by other quartets, but I still listen to these discs with great pleasure and for a great complete cycle at budget price I'd say you couldn't do better than this. The slow movement of the A minor quartet Op.132 is one of music's true miracles, and the Alban Bergs' playing of it is still my favourite of any quartet - indeed, it's possibly my favourite 15 minutes of music anywhere. The recording of the Quartet in E flat major, Op.74 ("The Harp") included in this set was selected by BBC Radio 3 CD Review's Building a Library in 2011 as the best available. Given the phenomenal standard of the competition, it's a fine endorsement of the quality of this box.

If you're looking for a recording of the Beethoven Quartets to get to know, this is ideal, and if you're already familiar with them there is plenty to enjoy in these interpretations. At this price it's an exceptional bargain, too, and I recommend this set very warmly indeed.

My favorite set of Beethoven String Quartets 9 février 2014
Par Joey Wang - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: CD Achat vérifié
Alban Berg Quartet have achieved the zenith of beethoven quartet performance in these great recordings. I've owned 15+ complete string quartet sets and this is still my favorite (even compared to ABQ's own live performance, which is great as well but oh well, there's always rushing passages and more errors when it comes to live performances). This re-issue is particularly worth of buying because it fixed some weird track merge issue in the previous re-issue (e.g. previously Op. 59 No. 3 had later 2 mov on the same track; same as Op. 59 No. 1 and Op. 74 etc.).

Yet another Beethoven super-bargain - we are spoilt for choice 16 avril 2014
Par Ralph Moore - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: CD
This is my fifth and, I should hope, last set of complete Beethoven quartets. Anyone wanting to become acquainted with one of the pinnacles of Western civilisation cannot actually go wrong if he or she were to be any one of the following I own: the mono Hungarian Quartet from 1953; the Smetana, recorded in the 60's; the Tokyo made between 1989 and 1992; the Medici, recorded 1988-1990 and this set, recorded between December 1978 and 1983.

Every one of them affords enormous pleasure to the listener; I should add to my list of super-bargains the earlier, mono set made by the Budapest Quartet, their later stereo re-make suffering from intonation problems; however I think if you choose a historical, mono set, either they or the Hungarians will satisfy. I lean towards the latter, as at key points such as the Cavatina in No. 13, Op. 130, their weight of phrasing and long line are utterly beguiling, as is their swift, lean intensity in the incomparable "Heiliger Dankgesang" of No. 15, Op. 132.

Other considerations are the lay-out and number of discs: this Alban Berg set manages to squeeze all the quartets onto only seven CDs but of course that requires re-ordering them. That does not bother me; who listens to more than one of these sublime but supremely demanding works in one sitting? The Hungarians take seven discs, the Medici eight and the Tokyo set extends to nine discs but includes a string quintet; all are available so cheaply that I don't see how this matters one way or the other.

Sound is obviously a major consideration. I have already briefly discussed the mono sets; most of us want a good stereo version with perhaps a historical set as a supplement. There are complaints in reviews about a supposed harshness or "glare" in this Alban Berg recording, in which only the last six quartets are digital, recorded in the early days of that technology with its attendant risks. I have to say that to my ears and on various different equipment, no such disadvantage is apparent to me after the 1993 remastering although I concede that everything is very forward and brightly lit - not necessarily a problem in such music.

After that, choice is down to personal taste. I could cavil and find petty fault by arguing that the Alban Berg is not sufficiently tender in that Op. 132 Molto adagio, that they lack the last degree of delicacy, or that their smooth, chocolaty richness of tone lacks the bite of the Medici, but the brighter sound they are given by EMI compensates for their homogeneity and overall there is every reason to treasure their playing as some of the finest ever committed to disc. Some prefer their later live recording for its greater spontaneity but that is not currently offered at super-bargain price and others like me prefer the security of studio versions.

For all that I love the Tokyo Quartet, especially in Mozart and Schubert, I find that I am slightly less enthusiastic about their Beethoven by reason of a suggestion of a certain soft-grained beauty with borders on blandness and the constant loud sniffing of their lead violinist as a prelude to every upbeat. The Smetana is occasionally a bit brusque and even momentarily flirts with sounding prosaic in slow movements but is so vibrant in faster movements. The security of their intonation and gradation of dynamics by the Alban Berg are especially telling, yet time and again, and perhaps unexpectedly, I find myself returning to the Medici for my favourite performances. These things are very personal and I would not dream of disparaging any of the great quartets under discussion but I respond to the way the Medici sometimes refrain from vibrato and are unafraid to apply astringency to their tone; they, too, are especially subtle in their use of dynamics. In brief, it is the endless variety of the Medici's interpretation which convinces me that they are the best of all; for me, they achieve a hypnotic quality beyond any other quartet.

Having hedged and havered over the "embarras de richesses" available in so many options, I would still maintain that you cannot go wrong with the set under review.

Incredibly well recorded with an amazing ensemble performance. Gorgeous splaying and sound. I like this better than the Guaneri and Takcas cycles I have.
