Gewandhaus Quartett - Beethoven: Die Streichquartette (CD)
This 10-CD box set presents the current line-up of the Gewandhaus-Quartett, which according to ClassicToday belongs quite rightly, to the world's leading quartet ensembles, with their award-winning recording of the complete Beethoven String Quartets.
The Leipzig Gewandhaus-Quartett is the world's oldest ensemble of its kind. Shortly after its foundation in 1808 by Heinrich August Matthä the former leader of the Gewandhaus Orchestra, the ensemble established itself as a permanent part of the Leipzig concert scene.
During its history the ensemble has played with such important composers and musicians as Clara Schumann, Johannes Brahms, Edvard Grieg and Arthur Nikisch. This tradition is still kept alive today, and the Gewandhaus-Quartett works regularly with internationally renowned artists such as Yo-Yo Ma, Menahem Pressler, and Sabine Meyer.
