There is probably no greater recommendation for this ensemble than Ravel's remark that if he ever decided to write another string quartet, it would be dedicated to the Roth Quartet. And just hopefully some day in the future some enterprising recording concern eventually gets the drift of Ravel's thinking and decides to issue some - if not all - of the approximately 35 recordings the Roth Quartet originally made for Columbia (to my knowledge, the only commercial recording from the Roth Quartet presently available in CD format is their early 1930s live performance of the Roy Harris arrangement of Bach's "Art of the Fugue").

So - here are three Roth sets I've been fortunate enough to find (which were just lying around, so to speak). The performances are among the most outstanding I know of any music on discs and deserve to be heard by music lovers everywhere. (And the literally countless hours spent preparing these transfers have not blunted my initial musical appreciation of these wonderful recordings to the slightest degree...)

The 1934 issue of Mozart's Quartet in D - strikingly different in character from the Roth Quartet's version of c.1950 - probably belongs in the "great recordings" category. The transfer offered here is from a Columbia reissue set dating from the late 1940s (while the Haydn and Schumann discs are from the early 1940s - when they are not, in all probability, original issues).

The Andante of Mozart's Quartet in D major is performed in the 1934 version from the Roth Quartet as the second movement of this work (i.e., not as the third movement, as the custom - presently, at least - has it); and, in the 1950 Mercury issue of the Six Quartets dedicated to Haydn, the Andante of KV 464 is also given by this ensemble as the second movement. Therefore, the decision has been made to keep the Andante in its place as the second movement. This is partly for reasons of historical accuracy giving first priority to exactly how the Roth Quartet performed their material. This is also mentioned in light of the fact that a currently available commercial download of another transfer of this recording - said to be taken from a British Columbia issue - positions the Andante as the third movement (just why this is so remains unclear - but it would be interesting to have more information on this point). Of course, one is always free to privately play the movements of a quartet or symphony in whatever order one chooses; but when a particular historical recording contains an apparently deliberate sequencing of movements, it seems only logical and fitting to preserve this order when presenting this recording publicly. Far more important, though: all of this has a marked aesthetic / formal dimension. To this listener's mind, the Andante functions exceedingly well as the second movement of the D major Quartet as OPPOSED to being positioned as the third movement. Could this have something to do with allowing the Andante to better function in this position as the work's so-called "emotional center"? Finally, it's not unthinkable that the Roth Quartet might have been motivated in their sequencing of the movements of the D major Quartet by a process of aesthetic decision-making based on these or related considerations ... and being led, in the process, to the same conclusion twice during a span of 25 years. Worth thinking about, at any rate ...

Transfers of 78 rpm material issued 1934 (Columbia Set M-222); c.1940 (Columbia set M-400); and recorded 1940 (Columbia set M-454).

Includes original covers, notes, labels, etc. (the notes booklet for the Haydn is not included, however, since it was unfortunately missing when the set was found).
