Notes & Reviews:

This original and appealing program presents works of Beethoven in chamber music arrangements with guitar, written by contemporaries, a practice that was quite common in the period, playing its role in the popularization of the music. Eminent guitarist Izhar Elias plays on several period instruments, including a rare terz instrument, smaller in size and tuned a minor third higher in order to achieve a more brilliant sound. He is joined by violin, viola and another guitar, according to the setting of the arrangements.

American Record Guide, March/April 2014
The music includes guitar solos and duos, guitar and viola, guitar and violin, and the Serenade, Op. 8, with the guitar replacing the cello, with the violin and viola. That is the most effective of the arrangements. So, if you have some friends who'd like to play some Beethoven this will show you some of the material that's available.
