About

Two extremes: the young Beethoven pays tribute to Mozartís String Quintet K515 with Op.29 and to his quartet for piano and strings K493 with Op.16. Then, almost 20 years later he produces his Grosse Fuge, unleashing potential for a 16-string ensemble. The hugely influential Budapest String Quartet shows how a bold fusion of princely salon music and innovative fugue can combine great power with virtuoso elegance. A timeless revelation.
