After cancelling and receiving a refund on my original Schubert order, I ordered 'used' from the Amazon Marketplace - I know I said I wouldn't but it was worth taking a chance for a saving of nine quid. Arrived today. First impression was not great. The case was grimy and the disc looked slightly marked but now listening to it for the second time, I really can't tell it is a used disc. And the music and recording....Great!
The Alban Berg Quartett really let rip, particularly in the final movement which at times seems rushed but is always exciting. This cast off Death and the Maiden is certainly well worth having.
