Description
The Gewandhaus Quartet celebrated its 200th anniversary in 2008, making it the longest-enduring string quartet in the world. For its 10-disc set of the complete string quartets of Ludwig van Beethoven, they were awarded the Annual Prize of the German Record Critics in 2004. The Quartet in E Minor, Opus 59, No. 2 is one of the demanding—and astounding—quartets written for Count Razumovsky, whereas the Quartet in E-flat major, Op. 74, is dedicated to Prince Lobkowitz, who promised Beethoven an income for life, provided he remained in Vienna or in Habsburg territories.

"It's hard not to be stunned here by the news that the first public performance of a string quartet with this name made from the principal players of the Leipzig Gewandhaus Orchestra was in November 1808…. Its set of complete Beethoven Quartets is very much of the most traditional cast in performance, with what is frequently a rich, oaken ensemble tone…. Excellent and quite well-turned out."—Buffalo News
