Busch Quartet

8.99 €

Fresh from Frankfurt in January 1951 comes this release documenting one of the last staging posts in the existence of the famous Busch Quartet. Both the Beethoven and Brahms quartets were pillars of the quartet’s repertoire. So we are fortunate that this German broadcast recording has been preserved and equally that it has been made available now.
