WorksGrosse Fuge in B flat major, op.133
String Quartet no.13 in B flat major, op.130
The Brentano Quartet delivers the third volume of Beethoven’s Late Quartets for ćon, this disc featuring Opp.130 and 133. The relation between form and language seems to haunt all the writing of his Quartet in B flat major. Indeed, the composer struggles with the enigmatic question of our intimate experience in relation to music and the sense of musical composition.
On the other hand, in the Grosse Fuge, Op.133, Beethoven the visionary proclaims his unshakeable faith in a world like a will facing menace and chaos. The pertinence of the struggle marks the structure and character of every page of the quartet, one of the composer’s most inspired.
It is impossible not to be impressed by the sharpness of the stroke, the clarity of the discourse and the intensity of the affects. Brilliant virtuosos, the superb mastery of the Brentanos has made them famous and displays its full power in the release of this final volume.
