Some still debate the motives underlying Mahler’s string orchestra arrangements of Schubert’s Death and the Maiden and Beethoven’s Serioso quartets, but ethical concerns become irrelevant upon hearing these exceptional new accounts. These impassioned, eloquently reasoned and beautifully recorded performances are easily the finest currently available. Stunning! Michael Jameson
