This torrent supplements Avant Garde Project installment 151, also uploaded today, and comprises a 24-bit/44.1kHz transcription of the Alban Berg Quartett's reading of Berg's String Quartet, op. 3. This is a dynamite performance and recording of this great work, and the transcription is very clean. The recording is from 1974, just a few years after the quartet formed, and features Günter Pichler, Klaus Maetzl, Hatto Beyerle, and Valentin Erben.
