Masterpieces for string quartet – the most demanding discipline
Minetti Quartet in the MuTh

* abgespielt

Before Beethoven tackled his first string quartet, he had already published numerous string trios, piano trios and violin sonatas. He held Haydn and Mozart in the highest esteem. By the time he published his three quartets, Brahms had, by his own admission, composed and discarded over twenty – such were his doubts when confronted by the mastery of classical composers such as Beethoven. In his quartets Shostakovich ventured into areas which, under the Stalinist regime, he dare not risk in other settings. And all this serves to demonstrate the unique standing of the string quartet format.
