Technically and intonationally clean as a whistle, these performances go way beyond mastering the notes themselves as part of an insatiable quest for what lies in between and behind them.
The performance culture and market for the string quartet in the late eighteenth century was markedly different to that of later times: the young Beethoven wrote his Quartets Op. The G major Quartet, the second in the collection, was one such work that could bemastered by talented aristocrats and bourgeois connoisseurs - 2.
Satz: Vivace - Ludwig van Beethoven - Beethoven Edition - The String Quartets is not tosay that its complexities or musical challenges are in any way diminished.
With the so-called "Razumovsky" Quartets,the string quartet reached adulthood. And one only needs to compare the technical and intellectual demands of Op. This becomes particularly obvious in the finale, an extended and extremely virtuosic fugue. The Quartetto di Cremona have combined these two works from Beethoven's early and middle periods for the seventh volume in their Complete Beethoven String Quartets recording series.
Both works end with an "earworm" - one in the classical spirit and one in the form of a rapid fugue - finale furioso! Bewundernswert, wie transparent sich die vier Stimmen auch im dritten der Rasumowski-Quartette verzahnen. Im extremen, aber stimmig musizierten Tempo des Fugato-Finales bleibt einem angesichts des virtuosen Wechsels zwischen Staccato- und Legato-Passagen der Mund offen.

Technical demands hold no terrors for this ensemble which dispatches the Fugal Finale to Op. No less admirable is the seamless manner in which three of the instruments connect to a single line melodic sequence of semiquavers in the preceding Minuet.
Another strength is their consummate mastery of soft mysterious playing, experienced here to best advantage in the unexpectedly veiled sounds they conjure up just before the recapitulation to the first movement of Op. Yet for all their undoubted qualities, these performances miss certain ingredients that are also central to Beethoven's musical make-up, in particular charm and humour.
The outer 2. Satz: Vivace - Ludwig van Beethoven - Beethoven Edition - The String Quartets of Op. In the opening Allegro, for example, the Quartetto di Cremona convincingly projects the sudden explosive fortes, but the principal melodic lines seem somewhat devoid of grace and elegance. Likewise, for all its brilliance of execution, the performers underplay the sheer impudence with which Beethoven changes to distant keys in the skittish Finale. In general, therefore, the more expansive Op.
Technical demands. What sets these players apart comes down to an unusual quality: intellectuality. Every phrase in these two Beethoven quartets has been thrust under a mental microscope.
Let me quote from a interview that violist Simone Gramaglia gave, where the question of vibrato comes up. In op. Delivering a moment of charm is almost a betrayal of the ethos the Quartetto di Cremona wants to convey.
Typically, a group that plays the drawn-out chords of the Introduzione without vibrato would be making a period performance gesture. Here, however, the effect is stark, a slash-and-burn that is unabashed. But then what to do when the main Allegro vivace, with its boisterous major-key exuberance, contradicts the opening? The same dilemma arises in the second movement, where a certain poised lightness is implied by the marking Andante con moto quasi allegretto.
One can point to many imaginative details—they crop up in practically every measure—and after a certain This Will Be (An Everlasting Love) - Natalie Cole - Love Songs the listener must either give in or rebel. I find myself strongly on the side of giving in and appreciating with fascination how a familiar work is suddenly made to sound new.
The most divisive movement is the finale, where the marking of Allegro molto is injected here with amphetamines, turning into a manic Presto that to me sounds breathless. The second quartet from the op. The four members of the Quartetto di Cremona—Cristiano Gualco and Paolo Andreoli, violins, Simone Gramaglia, viola, and Giovanni Scaglione, cello—are carefree and confident no matter how fast the passagework is. Every movement of their op. He seconds my opinion that this is a group to get excited about.
Bright, lifelike sound from Audite adds to the immediacy of the performances. Recorded in a warm, open acoustic, the striking range of sonorities created. Hier haben nicht die Quartettmusiker ihren Meister gefunden, sondern sie sind die Meister der Musik. So erreichen die vier beispielsweise im Finalsatz des dritten Rasumovsky Quartetts eine schlicht umwerfende Rasanz, die aber den Eindruck spielerischer Leichtigkeit geradezu noch steigert, da das Spiel zwar umwerfend schnell klingt, gleichzeitig aber entspannt.
