Album information

Here three works chosen to represent three key moments in Beethoven's life are performed by chamber ensemble.

With this recording of Beethoven's chamber music Alpha begins a collaboration with the WDR of Cologne and its various ensembles. Here a group of chamber musicians from the symphony orchestra presents the string quintets Op. 29 (1801) and Op. 104 (1817), thus linking Beethoven’s exuberant early period with that of the worry, discouragement and anguish caused by the conflict over custody of his nephew Karl. The disc comes to a majestic conclusion with the Fugue, Op. 137 (1817).
