Notes & Reviews:

Beethoven's String Quartets Nos. 1-6, Opus 18, are grouped together as his "early" string quartets. They are thought to demonstrate his total mastery of the classical string quartet as developed by Haydn and Mozart. The Orion String Quartet is one of the most sought-after ensembles in the United States. Since its inception, the Orion String Quartet has been consistently praised for the fresh perspective and individuality it brings to performances, offering diverse programs that juxtapose classic works of the standard quartet literature with masterworks by living composers.
