Beethoven: String Quartet, Piano Quartet, Fugue
Budapest String Quartet
A young Beethoven paid tribute to Mozart's String Quintet K515 and Quartet for Piano and Strings K493 with his own String Quintet and Piano Quartet. Nearly twenty years later, he produced his Great Fugue, a work that continues to defy categorization. On this recording from 1965, The Budapest String Quartet are joined by Walter Trampler and Mieczyslaw Horszowski for a program of virtuoso elegance.
