Fitzwilliam String Quartet

Beethoven: String Quartets Nos. 13 & 15; Grosse Fuge (2CD)

All that was issued of a projected Fitzwilliam Quartet cycle on Decca was two late quartets – Opp. 130 and 132 – as well as the Grosse Fuge. Issued over two full-price discs and unavailable for more than two decades, they are now coupled as a 2CD Eloquence reissue. Some of Beethoven’s most visionary achievements, the recordings were highly regarded upon their first (and only appearance) on CD.

String Quartet No. 13 in B flat major, Op. 130
