Here's a good helping of orchestrated quartets - which for the most part succeed I think.
Lviv (Ukraine) Chamber Orchestra "Perpetuum Mobile" 2007. Musical Director Prof. Georgy Pavliy. This was the first performance of Gustav Mahler's transcription of Beethoven's String Quartet No. 11 (op. 95) in Ukraine.Pt 1-3 Orchestrated Arrangement of Opus 95 "Serioso"
Pt 4-7 Orchestrated Arrangement of Opus 135
Pt 8 Orchestrated Arrangement of Opus 133 "Grosse Fuge"
Pt 9 Orchestrated Arrangement of Opus 130 "Cavatina" (Furtwangler, Berlin Phil, 1940)
Here's one more orchestrated version of Opus 95 - with better sound and video and a slightly rawer approach:
Belarusian State Chamber Orchestra. Philharmonic Hall.
Conductor - Evgeny Bushkov
String Qrtt Op.95 Orch. (Mahler Arr / Bushkov)
