String Quartet No. 6 in Bb Major, Opus 18 no. 6

🎼🎶 Sunday, March 21, 2021
Any idea that Beethoven's "early quartets", the Opus 18 set of six, are  "lightweight" or simply imitative of Haydn and Mozart, will be dispelled by the last - the Quartet in B-flat, "La Melanconia" (Melancholy).
Beethoven gave that name to the fourth movement, demanding that it be played with the utmost delicacy, and the quartet has been known by that name ever since.
This performance by the Emerson String Quartet is accompanied with the full score: https://youtu.be/DPCWO4S8mW8
