Of particular importance are the Guarneri’s recordings of Beethoven’s complete string quartets made in the 1960’s, available from RCA in three sets with three CDs in each. The Guarneri String Quartet released a CD in Spring 2001 of Quartets by Ravel, Debussy and Fauré, recorded for Surroundedby Entertainment.
