Someone has uploaded to YouTube--in one nine-hour file (never seen anything this long there)--all 16 of LVB's string quartets, which some consider the Everest of music (though for that you really have to get to quartet 6 and onward, or from 2:15 on). And it's by the fabled Quartetto Italiano in a legendary cycle. And good sound quality, for such a file. Go to YouTube for times for each quartet starting. If you're a newcomer, just go to 8:50 for the second movement of the first quartet (ten minutes long) and see if you get hooked. Note: Our new film and book explore one of Beethoven's other peaks, The Ninth Symphony, and its incredible political and cultural influence around globe. See trailer and amazing Bill Moyers segment.
