On this set, the legendary Budapest String Quartet's performances of the late string quartets of Mozart are collected for the first time. Still considered benchmark interpretations of these works, the group caused a sensation with their performances' astonishing expressionism and modernity. They accentuated contrasts and shied away from contemporary traditions like reprises and da capo, paving the way for the next generation.
