Ensemble Composer

Notes & Reviews:

The greatest string quartet cycle in the history of western music; presents musicians the ultimate interpretative test. Now often performed separately, the Grosse Fuge, op 133, was the original finale to his Quartet, op. 130 'There is no end to the exploration of Beethoven's musical riches...what seems to be the predominant impulse driving this music is man's yearning for freedom, the unquenchable desire to expand limits and learn truths...This cycle was an enriching challenge... ' - Quatuor Belcea
