Beethoven

String Quartet no. 14, op. 131

Together with opus 130 and opus 132, opus 131 forms the core of the late Beethovens. Opus 131 – deliberately placed in the middle by Beethoven, because he actually wrote it as the last of the three – is in a way the nucleus within the core. This specific quartet has everything to offer that makes the late Beethovens so special. It is an emotional and intense journey with unexpected – and often frustrating – twists that Beethoven somehow always manages to make up for. It’s a quartet of push and pull, yin and yang, loving and letting go.

Beethoven's late quartets are like books by Murakami or David Lynch's Twin Peaks. We can only understand them to a certain extent, but it is precisely this mystery of the unattainable, that genius hint of the superhuman, that creates an irresistible feeling of fear of missing out. An never-fading urge to fathom.
