Monday YouTube Fix: Guarneri String Quartet

Andrew Hitz

Beethoven is my favorite composer of all time which is a cruel joke since he passed away before my instrument was invented! I have always loved how the Guarneri String Quartet has played the Beethoven quartets. They seem to play them with a little bit of teeth to them but also with tons of nuance.  This is a wonderful performance of the first movement of Beethoven's 11th String Quartet in F Minor, Opus 95.  The 16th note runs being passed around are so even and sound so effortless.  They make the not at all easy seem like just that.

Enjoy!
