As a dynamic young string ensemble, the Belcea Quartet recorded the complete string quartets of Ludwig van Beethoven in what seemed like record time, releasing them in 2012 and 2013 in two separate volumes.

String Quartet No. 12 in E-Flat Major, Op. 127. 38:28.

Alpha is reissuing the complete Beethoven quartets by the Belcea Quartet : ‘Beethoven’s music has been at the center of our life as a quartet from our very first rehearsal together back in 1994. However, it is more recently that we immersed ourselves totally in Beethoven in preparation for, and during the course of the immense project of performing and recording all of his string quartets in the season 2011/12

Series: Belcea Quartet Complete Beethoven String Quartets. Length: 3 hours 52 minutes . BBC Music Magazine, August 2013, Mor. elease Date: 22nd Apr 2013. Catalogue No: ZZT321. Series: Belcea Quartet Complete Beethoven String Quartets. Length: 4 hours 47 minutes.

Ludwig van Beethoven's late string quartets are the following works: Opus 127: String Quartet No. 12 in E♭ major (1825). Opus 130: String Quartet No. 13 in B♭ major (1825). Opus 131: String Quartet No. 14 in C♯ minor (1826). Opus 132: String Quartet No. 15 in A minor (1825). Opus 133: Große Fuge in B♭ major (1825; originally the finale to Op. 130; it also exists in a piano four-hands transcription, Op. 134). Opus 135: String Quartet No. 16 in F major (1826).

An excellent traversal of the Beethoven Quartets by the Belcea Quartet. The precise playing is often aggressive, with an extremely wide dynamic range to the performance and recording. That said, ensemble is tight and the playing is crisp. Third, the quartets are not presented chronologically - not a deal breaker, but I prefer recordings grouped that way. Fourth, the booklet says nothing about the music. If you use CD booklets to learn about the music (pathetic with most CD companies these days), you will not find anything useful here.

Recorded In Concert On 3/4 December 2011, 23/25 March & 18/19 May 2012 At The Britten Studio, Snape (ALDEBURGH Music).

Beethoven: The Complete String Quartets, Vol. 1. Belcea Quartet. String Quartet No. 6 in B-Flat Major, Op.

The Belcea Quartet has an impressive discography. During its long-term association with EMI Classics, the quartet recorded the complete Britten and Bartók quartets as well as works by Schubert, Brahms, Mozart, Debussy, Ravel and Dutilleux, amongst others. In 2012 and 2013, the quartet recorded the complete Beethoven quartets live in the Benjamin Britten Studio in Snape. The Belcea Quartet’s performances of the complete Beethoven string quartets at Vienna’s Konzerthaus in 2012 were broadcast by Mezzo TV and were released – on DVD and Blue Ray disk – by the label Euroarts in fall 2014. Nel 2015, in coincidenza con il 20° anniversario, l’album con musiche di Webern, Berg e Schönberg è stato accolto con grande entusiasmo.
