The Paganini Quartet was a virtuoso string quartet founded by its first violinist, Henri Temianka, in 1946. The quartet drew its name from the fact that all four of its instruments, made by Antonio Stradivari (1644–1737), had once been owned by the great Italian violinist and composer Niccolo Paganini (1782–1840). In 1945 Temianka met the noted cellist Robert Maas, who had been with the Pro Arte Quartet
Beethoven Quartets In F & G (LP, Mono).
The Piano Quartets, WoO 36, by Ludwig van Beethoven are a set of three piano quartets, completed in 1785 when the composer was aged 15. They are scored for piano, violin, viola and cello. He composed a quartet in C major, another in E-flat major, and a third in D major.
Each illuminates aspects of these quartets in a unique fashion. In 1952, the Veghs were more blunt and more direct, using slightly faster tempos and a more objective approach, though full of individual touches not found elsewhere.

Instead, the Belcea Quartet takes pains to interpret the quartets in unpredictable ways, giving each part and movement a strong character and providing an edginess that maintains a high level of suspense. In a sense, the early quartets are punchy and brash, the middle quartets are knotty and serious, and the late ones are elevated but not treated with excessive reverence. Tempos overall are brisk and the tone is sometimes brusque and even rough, creating a harshness and tension that may be too strong for some ears.
Proponents for Beethoven cite his five late quartets, which were the final works that he completed. In this first of three volumes, the Cypress String Quartet brings a fresh voice of humanity and clarity to these monumental works.

Finally, the Late Beethoven String Quartets, which group includes his last five quartets and the Große Fuge, are the composer's last completed works. Though these works are widely considered to be among the greatest musical compositions ever written, their uncompromising intellectual complexity and their apparent rejection of the romantic pathos which pervades Beethoven's middle period both ensure that they remain considerably less popular than the Razumovsky quartets.
