Saturday Morning Series

Young Beethoven spent a difficult decade trying to achieve what had come so naturally to Mozart. And the string quartet, with its complex interplay of four voices, gave him particular trouble. But his first set of quartets is not simply an imitation of earlier masters. Instead, Beethoven began experimenting with the form and edging toward his own distinct voice. Beethoven’s “middle” quartets, especially those written for Count Andreas Kyrillovich Razumovsky, came as a surprise to their commissioner. Razumovsky was an amateur violinist and string quartet enthusiast who had studied with Haydn. The three quartets Beethoven published as his Op. 59, known today as the “Razumovsky Quartets,” were so completely original that in one stroke they redefined the genre.

Late Beethoven is all about contrasts—prayer and play, structural logic and emotional candor, convention and daring. These last works encompass a wide range of emotions, from the playful to some of the most deeply-felt Beethoven ever wrote. From the Grosse Fuge, which Stravinsky called an “absolutely contemporary piece of music that will be contemporary forever,” to the heart-rending third movement of Op. 132, which has seemed to some the greatest music Beethoven ever wrote, to his final quartet, surprisingly full of radiance and light, this is music that cannot be described in words and should simply be experienced.
