  • Navarra String Quartet

Beethoven applied the subtitle ‘Serioso’ to his Op. 95, a mark of its specific gravity and a reflection of the composer’s increasingly difficult personal circumstances.

The Navarra String Quartet prefaces Beethoven’s concise masterwork with two compositions of contrasting emotions, opening with Haydn’s sonorous Op. 20 No. 2 before plunging into the highly dramatic flow of Schubert’s Quartettsatz.

  • Joseph Haydn (1732-1809)
        • String Quartet in C major Op. 20 No. 2
  • Franz Schubert (1797-1828)
        • Quartettsatz in C minor D703
  • Ludwig van Beethoven (1770-1827)
        • String Quartet in F minor Op. 95 'Serioso'
