Sint-Janskerk, Gouda, 2 October, 2021, Beethoven en Dvorak
Beethoven's 15th string quartet, opus 132
Allegro ma non tanto
Alla Marcia, Assai Vivace
Beethoven was very much focused on having this composition finished by early February 1825. However the serious illness in the spring had interfered and only in May he was settled to write again and as a victory upon the sickness he celebrates it in his Heiliger Dankgesang, which became the third movement of this quartet.
