Antonin Dvorak (1841-1904)
A - String Quartet in F Major, op. 96 (American)
B - String Quartet in D minor, Op. 34

Recorded in 1963

“The Janáček’s bring us the finest and best recorded performance so far of the F major (American). The D minor gains greatly from the better balanced recording, especially in the slow movement... this is a distinguished and idiomatic performance. I warmly recommend this disc. The Janáček’s performance seemed to me the best we had ever had and it is not surpassed.” - Gramophone

The "golden age" of recordings was from 1955 to 1965, at the beginning of the LP and the stereo era, where pure vacuum tube amplification helped produce recordings demonstrating unparalleled fidelity and warmth, lifelike presence and illumination.

This Analogphonic record was mastered from the original Deutsche Grammophon master tapes by Rainer Maillard, using pure analogue audiophile equipment, cut at Emil Berliner Studio Berlin, and pressed at Pallas GmbH in Germany.
