Product description

BEETHOVEN: String Quartet No.14 in C♯ minor, Op.131

The String Quartet No. 14 in C♯ minor, Op. 131, was completed by Ludwig van Beethoven in 1826. It was Beethoven's favourite of the late quartets: he is quoted as remarking to a friend that he would find "a new manner of part-writing and, thank God, less lack of imagination than before". It is said that upon listening to a performance of this quartet, Schubert remarked, "After this, what is left for us to write?" Robert Schumann said that this quartet and Op. 127 had a "...grandeur [...] which no words can express. They seem to me to stand...on the extreme boundary of all that has hitherto been attained by human art and imagination." The quartet is dedicated to Baron Joseph von Stutterheim as a gesture of gratitude for taking Beethoven's nephew, Karl, into the army after a suicide attempt. The quartet is in seven movements, played without a break; the quartet starts with a slow fugue and ends with a sardonic sonata rondo. The recordings of the Beethoven Quartets by the Hungarian Quartet were regarding as the finest available when recorded in the 1950s.

2. Allegro molto vivace
3. Allegro molto - Adaigo - Piu vivace

The Hungarian Quartet
