Tokyo String Quartet - Beethoven: The 'Late' String Quartets mp3 download


Ludwig van Beethoven's late string quartets are the following works: Opus 127: String Quartet No. 12 in E♭ major (1825). Opus 130: String Quartet No. 13 in B♭ major (1825). Opus 131: String Quartet No. 14 in C♯ minor (1826). Opus 132: String Quartet No. 15 in A minor (1825). Opus 133: Große Fuge in B♭ major (1825; originally the finale to Op. 130; it also exists in a piano four-hands transcription, Op. 134). Opus 135: String Quartet No. 16 in F major (1826).

The Tokyo String Quartet is one of the world's leading interpreters of Beethoven, and although its 1993 RCA release of the complete string quartets is one of the most admired of modern digital sets, the ensemble offers a refreshed presentation of the late string quartets on this 2010 triple SACD package from Harmonia Mundi.

For a late quartet, I played the op. 127. It is given a marvelous reading - the contrast between its sound-world and that of Op. 18 is amazing, and one wonders just how Beethoven got from the one to the other - a stylistic jump to invented freedom comparable to that made in his medium by the poet Yeats. The long slow movement of the Op. 127 is almost a string quartet in itself, and the deployment of all the instruments to create a texture that is quite unlike anything heard in the quartet medium before Beethoven is a wonder in itself.

This set completes the Tokyo Quartet's Beethoven series for Harmonia Mundi. The group has recorded the cycle before, with a different first violin and cello, for RCA in the 1980s, but the basic characteristics remain the same. The Tokyo Quartet continues to prize beauty of sound and smoothness of articulation above all other musical qualities, and there are few recordings of these works to match the sheer polish and unanimity of ensemble that are on display here
