One can only regret that Beethoven left only four piano quartets, as these four works rank among the most popular of this genre. Three of them, the Quartets WoO 36, had been penned in Bonn, which makes them one of the master's most successful juvenilia of all. Yet even if they exhale Mozart's spirit, they are already and unmistakably typical Beethoven. Further evidence of his regard for the pieces can be found in his re-use of the third quartet's slow movement in his first Piano Sonata op. 2 no. 1. The fourth quartet represents another version of the Wind Quintet op. 16.

  • January 16, 2017 great for serious musicians.

    For the price, you get the entire score for the four quartets in the main book, and each string instrument gets its own book with just its part for each of the quartets. Be sure to write your name and number on all the parts if you loan it out...

    to your quartet. Overall, this book and the parts are printed beautifully and accurately and the pieces are excellent to study.
