The Kodály Quartet are back to their finest form in Op. 50 and they are most naturally recorded. These are mellow performances, warm and polished, with perfect blending of timbre, yet refined detail. Slow movements are beautifully shaped, with the leader, Attila Falvay, frequently distinguishing himself with the graceful finish of his phrasing. Allegros are spirited but unforced, Minuets have an affectionate modicum of wit, and finales are never rushed.
