The Léner String Quartet has been almost forgotten, perhaps because their style of playing had been termed "old fashioned", when compared with the modern ensembles such as the Emerson and Juilliard String Quartets. Nevertheless, the employment of extreme vibrato was the style of playing known and approved by the romantic masters of the late 19th century. The reissue of the Léner recordings has been sparse during the LP and CD era even though they enjoyed one of the greatest and most important recording careers.
Commenced during the accoustic era, they re-recorded everything when electrical recordings became the norm. Among their many distinctions, they were the first ensemble to record the Beethoven String Quartets.
