Beethoven: Intégrale des Quatuors à cordes, Vol. I

“For a string quartet Beethoven is the hallmark, the keystone. We would never have hoped to carry out such a project 25 years ago and now, here we are, 25 years later.”
—David Ellis, cellist, Alcan String Quartet

The Alcan String Quartet celebrates its 25th anniversary with a landmark three-volume recording of the complete cycle of Beethoven’s 16 string quartets. This first volume being released in November contains the 6 quartets from Beethoven’s early period. Volumes 2 and 3 will be released in 2015. Since its formation in 1989, the Alcan Quartet has forged a reputation for excellence across Canada and abroad.
