The classic Busch Quartet 'Death & The Maiden'

Remastered for finest sound quality


Despite this quartet receiving so many recordings that more than fifty are in the current catalogue, as reviewer Andrew Clements pointed out in The Guardian (June 15, 2001): "One of the earliest remains one of the best; the 1936 performance by the Busch Quartet, which, for its heartfelt purity and naturalness, sets a benchmark against which all subsequent accounts need to be measured." Well now you can hear this benchmark in a brand new restoration, sounding better than ever before!
