MOZART String Quartet No. 15 in D Minor, K. 421
BEETHOVEN String Quartet No. 8 in E Minor, Op. 59, No. 2
The Johannes String Quartet plays Beethoven’s powerful Razumovsky No. 2 string quartet. It’s thought that Mozart’s Quartet No. 15 was completed in 1783, while his wife Constanze was in labor with their first child. Constanze thought that the rising string figures in the second movement corresponded to her cries from the other room.
