The Takacs Quartet's performance of Beethoven's Late String Quartets truly deserve all the praise they have received. I feel that anyone who truly loves Beethoven's Late Quartets will understand why, I'll do my best to explain. Takacs successfully highlight the beauty AND the strangeness of these magnificent work. 130, with the revised finale followed immediately by Op. 133, so you can compare the two endings and see which you like better. 2 people found this helpful.

The Tokyo Quartet gives us the best performance of vast second movement of Op. 127 that I have (yet) heard, including live performances that I have attended. The opening of this movement feels as though we have opened a door to a room where this music has always been playing, perhaps since time began, and we have just discovered it. The Tokyo Quartet offers us a front row seat to this mystery, and neither their nor our attention wanders.
