Mozart String Quintet in B flat K. 174
Beethoven String Quartet in F Op. 135
Mozart String Quintet in E flat K. 614
With David Adams (Guest Viola)
The first and the last of Mozart’s great cycle of viola quintets sandwich Beethoven’s last great quartet. This has one of the most beloved slow movements of his whole output. The rest of the work has often been said to branch out into what may have become a new departure in Beethoven’s music had he not died soon afterwards. It has almost a Haydnesque spirit of wit and good nature although paradoxically taken to the extremes which characterise Beethoven’s last works.
