The late quartets #3


Les Derniers Quatuors #3

1h sans entracte


Ludwig van Beethoven
String Quartet No 15 op.132

The Diotima Quartet pursues its exploration of Beethoven’s late quartets. In the quartet form, the composer was to find an ideal terrain in which to develop his science of counterpoint, reflect his intimate expressions and pare down the quartet sound. His String Quartet No 15 is alternately lyrical and solemn. The third movement also expresses Beethoven’s gratitude for recovering from a serious illness, a detail worth remembering as his music reaches such heights that one would almost forget that he was mortal.
