If you’re one of those who dismiss Brahms as conservative, regressive, unadventurous – listen to this disc. Robert Fuchs’s Third and Fourth quartets are what Brahms would sound like if he really had been conservative, regressive and unadventurous. All pleasingly performed and recorded, but of strictly historical interest. Stephen Johnson
