Another lovely performance by string quartet. The arrangement was by Robert Simpson who died in 1997. They do not include the canons but do include a finished version of the final fugue (completed by Donald Francis Tovey), as well as the unfinished version (my preference). I enjoyed it very much and recommend it.
