The recording from 1927 has the limitations you'd expect from the time and in movement 2 the quartet sounds like they hit the resonant tone of the room which leads to a sustained hum that, I assure you (having studied the score over the years) is not in the score.

It's Thanksgiving week here in the United States and so you'll forgive me if I end up just throwing up a bunch of links to things that interest me and you won't be hugely surprised that ends up being music.
