Hailed as “an important new force in the chamber music arena” with a “dream-team line-up” (Strings), the Ehnes Quartet is comprised of four internationally renowned string musicians: violinists James Ehnes and Amy Schwartz Moretti, violist Richard O’Neill, and cellist Edward Arron. On their third release devoted to Beethoven, the Ehnes Quartet includes the last two works of his “middle period.” The sunny and amiable E-flat, known as the Harp, and the terse and irascible F Minor, known as the Serioso. Beethoven had a habit of working on two works of wildly differing emotional ranges at the same time – never more clearly illustrated than in these two masterly quartets.
