Quartet No.s 6 & 11 - Beethoven, Columbia-Mstwks-collectable, Budapest Str. Qtt. - ML 4073

£6.99

Product description

(featuring The Budapest String Quartet : violinist I J Roismann ; violinist II A Schneider ; violist B Kroyt ; and, cellist M Schneider. Interesting to hear the Budapest String Quartet's renditions, of these two often-staged works. Released on the highly-collectable "Columbia Masterworks" label)

This recording, by the famous Budapest String Quartet, couples the respective final string quartets from Ludwig van Beethoven's (1770-1827) First and Middle periods.

The String Quartet No.6 in B flat Major, Op.18/6 is in four movements : the first movement begins with a sprightly theme and is generally lighthearted in character ; the following Adaigo is music of great melodic charm ; the scherzo has a disarming naivete. The final movement is introduced by a dark, mysterious section (La Malinconia) - the main section is interrupted several times by fragments of this theme.
String Quartet No.6 in B flat major Op.18/6, by Beethoven :-
1) I Allegro con brio 2) II Adagio ma non troppo 3) III Scherzo (Allegro) 4) IV La Malinconia (Adagio : Allegretto quasi allegro).

The String Quartet No.11 in F minor "Serious" Op.95, does indeed live up to its name - it is possibly the most intense work that Beethoven wrote in this medium ... The opening movement, in sonata form, is based on the rugged subject introduced in the opening bars ; the slow movement is developed from an extended and strangely inconclusive melody, with a fugal middle section, and leads without a break into the restless and tense scherzo. The finale has a short slow introduction, leading to a sonata form movement with an extended coda based on new material.
String Quartet No.11 in F minor "Serious" Op.95, by Beethoven :-
1) I Allegro con brio 2) i) II Allegretto ma non troppo ; ii) III Allegro assai vivace ma serioso 3) IV Larghetto espressivo. Allegretto agitato. Allegro.

(further, English-language notes, on Reverse Sleeve (sample Photo Four))
