Detailed Description

BEETHOVEN: String Quartets, Op. 18: No. 1 in F major & No. 4 in C minor composed by Ludwig van Beethoven (1770-1827). For violin. Instrumental Solo Part and CD. Published by Music Minus One (MO.MMOCD3158).

ISBN 1596151870.

In 1798, Beethoven commenced the writing of the biggest project in his first decade in Vienna, a set of six String Quartets which would become his opus 18. The F major, though listed as No. 1, was the second composed. It is an impressive piece, and its beautiful D-minor adagio was inspired by the burial-vault scene in Shakespeare's 'Romeo and Juliet.' The Fourth Quartet, in C minor, is a fascinating piece which incorporates a gypsy theme into its final movement. Beautiful writing from the latter part of Beethoven's 'early' period.

Includes a complete, high-quality printed solo part; and a compact disc containing stereo accompaniments minus you, the first violinist.
