Gustav Mahler: String Quartet a-Moll for piano, violin, viola and violoncello (1876)

Ludwig van Beethoven: String Quartet No. 14 in C-sharp minor Op. 131
Duration approx. 110 minutes, incl. interval
A must-hear: Beethoven's String Quartet in C-sharp Minor is a music-historical landmark. Not only for the composer or the history of the string quartet. With its seven movements, it creates a whole world of its own, full of expressive contrasts.
It is joined by what is probably the most important sonata for piano four hands, Mahler's only surviving chamber music work and Britten's precocious gem from the oboe repertoire.
