The Colorado String Quartet celebrates its 20th anniversary with newly-recorded performances of Beethoven String Quartets. The two-disc set is intended as the first release in a cycle of Beethoven Quartets, to be completed in time for the Quartet’s 25th anniversary.
These performance include all repeats marked by Beethoven in his scores, extending their playing time so that the four works are on two well-filled discs (74:20 & 71:08).
