With that said, this set still has vivid color, high energy, and genuine passion going for it, coming from fresh readings and a perspective other quartets can only envy.
There are points of comparison, particularly the last movement of the second quartet and the opening of the fourth, Bimbotronic - 110714 (File) show that little has changed in the Juilliard 's understanding of these works. But there are many revelations and felicitous moments that all worthwhile performances must have.
