String Quartet in G minor, op.
String Quartet in F major.
DG Classikon 469-591-2.
This is a bargain of bargains! The Lasalle Quartet's legendary prowess in
modern chamber works has been lionized the world over with a flood of discs
that remain amongst the most significant in the catalogues. These are famous
early 70s recordings and they receive definitive performances. Debussy's
quartet shines through in an impressionistic image that is chiefly mirrored
in the final movement bubbling with passion and virtuosity. In the Ravel,
the Lasalle Quartet are more subtle, more technically minded, as this is
a work that contains many pitfalls but which is ultimately one of the finest
quartets of the 20th century. Short but informative notes and a cleanly
remastered recording cannot but seal a definitive recommendation.
