BEETHOVEN'S STRING QUARTETS
OF HIS MIDDLE STYLE PERIOD



 


Count Razumovsky


In its layout, our internet presentation of Beethoven's string quartets follows his major compositional style periods.  However, a respective immediate delving into the next work group would be like the behavior of a car owner who, on a cold winter morning, would want to immediately start driving, without warming up the engine and without cleaning his car's windows: he can not see much and his car's engine is sputtering.   

Our "warm-up" could consist of our attempt to gain a lively impression of the time that passed between the two first work groups.  For this, you just have to click on the next link below:
