      Beethoven frequently aroused incomprehension amongst contemporaries with his late quartets, but never more so than with the “Great Fugue”—originally the Quartet Op. 130 finale.

      The Quartetto di Cremona make the monumental Fugue Op. 133 the centerpiece of the third volume of their Complete Beethoven String Quartets recording series, flanked by the Op. 18 and the Op. 59/1.

      Formed in 2000, the Quartetto di Cremona are internationally renowned for their “extremely mature and lyrical sound” (Strad).
