Ludwig van Beethoven's Op. 18, published in 1801 by T. Mollo et Comp in Vienna in two books of three quartets each, consisted of his first six string quartets. They were composed between 1798 and 1800 to fulfill a commission for Prince Joseph Franz Maximilian Lobkowitz, who was the employer of Beethoven's friend, the violinist Karl Amenda. They are thought to demonstrate his total mastery of the classical string quartet as developed by Joseph Haydn and Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart.
The String Quartet No. 6 in B♭ major, Op. 18, No. 6, was written between 1798 and 1800 by Ludwig van Beethoven and published in 1801, and dedicated to Joseph Franz von Lobkowitz. There are four movements: Allegro con brio. Adagio ma non troppo. La Malinconia: Adagio - Allegretto quasi Allegro. The first movement is in sonata form. The first theme starts in B♭ with a conversation between the first violin and the cello.

18 String Quartets by the Quatuor Mosaïques was originally released in early 1995, it set the standard for period instrument performance practice. The Mosaïques had already released great recordings of the quartets by Haydn, Boccherini, and Mozart, but no one dreamed that the Beethoven would be this good, this warmly grained, this richly polished, this fully humane. Although playing with a completely secure technique set the group apart from its contemporaries, the things that really set the Mosaïques above its contemporaries was the depth of tone and the profundity of interpretation
The String Quartet No. There are four movements: Allegro con brio Adagio ma non troppo Scherzo: Allegro La Malinconia: Adagio - Allegretto quasi Allegro. The viola and cello inteject with an odd motif marked "queste note ben marcate". The Scherzo returns to B♭ major and is a "tour de force of syncopation" and "an explosion of rhythmic eccentricity". It depends on rhythmic effects of 3 x 2 as against 2 x 3 within the 6 eight-notes to the bar in a moderate 3/4 meter. The fourth movement is the crux of the piece and possibly the highlight of Op. It is marked "Questo pezzo si deve trattare colla più gran delicatezza" ("This piece is to be played with the greatest delicacy".
This CD is from the Végh Quartet's second survey of Beethoven's String Quartets, performances recorded in 1972-73. The Végh Quartet was formed by Sandor Végh in Budapest in 1940, performing there until after the second world war. The original members continued to perform and record together for 40 years before disbanding in 1980, an extraordinary legacy for those four performers: Sandor Végh, violin; Sandor Zöldy, violin; Georges Janzer, viola; Paul Szabo, cello. These are absolutely superb performances, sublime and expressive. I've had this particular recording, as well as several other individual CD's from these 1970's performances, for at least twenty years.
