Please follow this link to read Edward Dusinberre’s brilliant article on the Takács Quartet and the Op.59s.

I can also warmly recommend Professor Robert Greenberg’s video lectures on the quartets of Beethoven. He is wonderfully eccentric, shows vast knowledge and has a great sense of humour. Pricy, but well worth it!

    I should have also mentioned http://www.plushmusic.tv. which even has a Borletti-Buitoni Trust Artists page. [http://www.plushmusic.tv/channels/E03/borletti-buitoni-trust.html]

    I had the notion that plushmusic.tv was too expensive so had ignored it. However I have just checked and it now claims that many concerts are free.

    If that is so then this is a great resource with a more UK centric thrust. The quality of video and sound are excellent.

    Another great resource that your readers will enjoy is Medici.tv. As I write this I am watching the Artemis Quartet playing Beethoven Quartet in G Major Op. 18 No. 2 at a concert at the Bouffes Du Nord (Paris) made in 2001. The video and sound are both very good.

    I have managed to get a full years access at the best quality setting for £76. However this is a sale price for the website relaunch.
