The Amadeus Quartet was a part-Austrian, part-English ensemble that fused elegance and intelligence and expressivity with virtuosity to create a style of quartet playing wholly suited to the Viennese classics from Mozart through Brahms but which fit Beethoven like a hand-tailored suit. While other ensembles had recorded the Beethoven quartets before the Amadeus, none of those performances had the clarity and lucidity the Amadeus brought to them

The String Quartet No. 14 in C♯ minor, Op. 131, was completed by Ludwig van Beethoven in 1826.

Beethoven: The String Quartets. During the 23 years when the Amadeus Quartet was under exclusive contract to Deutsche Grammophon, their name was synonymous with the finest in music-making. Central to their repertoire were the key Austro-German quartet works, and their Beethoven cycle is perhaps the most fitting choice as a tribute to the Amadeus – one closest to their hearts. Many of us will have learned this exalted repertoire from their complete DG cycle, and revisiting it for the first time in true HD sound reaffirms qualities which have set it as one of the pinnacles of recorded chamber music. De Marliave is less sympathetic to the Grosse Fuge as part of this whole very rhapsodic quartet and I have a tendancy to agree. The Amadeus set's sound is almost consistently inferior to any recording I compare it to.

Beethoven Late String Quartets. 18 first appeared, sforzandos are occasionally a bit rough and ''in fortes the first violin should, perhaps, have a little more tone''. In any event, from the vantage point of 1989, I would not prefer the Amadeus on seven CDs to the Talich, in spite of the less handsome packaging or the advantage in price-and in spite of the fact that the Talich's set of Op. 18 falls a little below the quality of inspiration that distinguishes the rest of the cycle.
