Beethoven Complete String Quartets – Vol. I | CEDILLE

They play not only with energy, but with a strikingly strong emphasis and at the same time with a lot of spontaneity. In other words: the Dovers play Beethoven with unmistakable character and gestures from the first quartet on. pizzicato | Remy Franck | November 9, 2020
