Description
By the time he had written his fifth and six string quartets, Beethoven had assimilated an enormous amount from his studies of the classical models provided by Haydn (his onetime teacher) and by Mozart. He chose the lightearted key of A Major for the fifth quartet, which is dominated for long stretches by virtuoso violin passages. It is also striking for the Andante's theme and variations on a song-like melody. The first few movements of the sixth quartet are rather jocund (and even a bit jazzy in places); the melancholic and rhapsodic Adagio, however, is entitled La Malinconia and is marked Questo pezzo si deve trattare piú gran delicatezza ("this piece to be played with the utmost delicacy"). The work concludes with the Allegretto quasi Allegro, a sunny rondo. This 2003 recording is part of the Gewandhaus Quartet's traversal of the complete string quartets of Beethoven, for which it was awarded the Annual Prize of the German Record Critics in 2004.
