String Quartets, Vol. 2 (Nos. 7-11, Opp.59, 74, 95) by Ludwig van Beethoven

Parts only. Edited by Andreas Moser. Published by C.F. Peters

Ludwig van Beethoven (1770-1827) was the most influential and admired composer of the Romantic Era, and is considered today to be among the greatest composers of classical music to ever live. His music is known variously for its compositional rigor, sublime beauty, organic development, gripping urgency, and life-affirming, universal humanism. He left a significant mark on almost every classical genre he worked in, from string quartets to symphonies.

Beethoven's cycle of sixteen string quartets spans his entire compositional career and is often considered to be the most significant ever composed, guiding the form from its classical beginnings thru the freer expression of the Romantic Era and even pointing to developments far in the future. His middle period quartets represent the first dramatic transformations he made to the form, imbuing it with more weight, complexity, and technical mastery. These quartets include the three Op.59 ''Razumovsky'' quartets, Nos. 7-9, perennial favorites and repertoire mainstays of quartet literature, as well as No. 10, Op.74 ''Harp", so named from its harp-like arpeggiated chords and the compact, experimental No. 11, Op.95 ''Serioso''. The high-quality C.F. Peters volume (the second of three) contains all five middle period quartets. Parts only. Master level, grade 6.
