If the Naxos discs are not necessarily a first choice, no one investing in them need fear they are getting short-changed. The Eder Quartet is a very distinguished ensemble and have a very good feeling for this repertoire, and those for whom economy is a primary concern should consider this. Quite apart from its cost, this series is emerging as one of the most competitive of the newer versions of this powerful music. The recorded sound is superior and offers a serious challenge.
