Description: We seem to have missed the first volume of string quartets (over which Gramophone went bananas) but offered the other three chamber music discs. But, at this price, we must offer it to anyone who wasn’t buying up the individual discs as they came out. 6 CDs. Original 1981 (piano works) and 2007-08 releases.
