Someone just (recently, anyway) put up a live version of The Juilliard String Quartet performing Op. 131 LIVE (the 1974 group). Well, I had to stop everything to listen.

I assume it's been mentioned, but the Emerson String Quartet recordings are really something. Very well recorded too

String Quartet In B Flat, Op. 18, No. 6 (1977, CBC)
The Orford String Quartet
Terence Helmer viola
Andrew Dawes violin
Kenneth Perkins violin

One of the "lighter" quartets in the series and handled so by Orford.
