Many anecdotes surround String Quartet op. 131: Beethoven is said to have considered it to be his finest quartet and of his late period works, the one dearest to his heart. It is also believed that the composer invested so much ofhimself in it: his ailing health, the social isolation brought about by his deafness and the suicide attempt of his nephew Karl. In addition it was reported that Franz Schubert asked to hear this piece once more on hisdeathbed.
Even if these anecdotes are not all true, they reveal what generations of musicians felt they heard in this quartet: Beethoven's most personal musical idiom and a vulnerable message from the final period of hislife.
This new edition by Jonathan Del Mar represents a thorough revision of this highly complex work. Meticulously incorporated are Beethoven's pencil markings that were previously almost completely ignored.
