The acclaimed 1959 Concert-Disc recordings; digitally restored from the original masters - issued under license from Countdown Media. This set was very highly regarded during its LP-life which lasted over a quarter-century. Harold C. Schonberg wrote in The New York Times: 'The Fine Arts Quartet is an excellent ensemble: secure in intonation, musically alert, precise in workmanship. It makes a good showing in the Bartók quartets, approaching the music with sensitivity and instrumental strength.'
