Cherubini: The String Quartets, performed by the Melos Quartet ?????

Five stars should not suggest that these are my favorite quartets. For contemporaries, I certainly prefer the quartets of Beethoven or Schubert. Yet, these quartets have a delightful charm of their own, and worthy of highest recommendation. The Melos Quartet offers a very spirited interpretation, making it a joy to listen to each one of these six quartets. Cherubini is often forgotten, though one must remember that both Hayden and Beethoven praised with works. Anybody who listens attentively to these quartets will understand why Cherubini should stand among the great classical composers. Both the quartets as well as his religious choral works are charming, creative and enjoyable to listen to.
