Beethoven wrote string quartets throughout his entire life. He composed 16 pieces, beginning with six quartets from Opus 18 (1798–1800), going through three quartets dedicated to Ambassador Razumovsky from Opus 59 (1806–14), Harp from Opus 74 (1809), Serioso from Opus 95 (1810), and ending with five ‘late quartets’ (1824–27). The Meccore String Quartet brings together one of the first works of the genre, String Quartet No. 1, Op. 18, and the legendary Grosse Fuge, Op. 133, which was recognized in the 20th century as Beethoven’s greatest achievement.
