  • Beethoven String Quartet in B flat Op.130
  • Beethoven Grosse Fugue Op.133

Beethoven’s string quartets are amongst the supreme achievements in all art, and no music is greater than his five visionary late quartets. Today, four CBSO musicians tackle what might just be the greatest of them all: the visionary Op.130. This is Beethoven at his most powerful, most vulnerable, and most heartbreakingly human, and it’s topped by the mighty Grosse Fuge – still the ultimate test of four players and an audience.
