Quote from: PSmith08 on October 29, 2007, 08:09:30 PMOnly 12? You get all of Beethoven's (including op. 133) and all of Bartók's and you're already at 23. I am, ordinarily, not one to define entire genres by a handful of composers, but I would almost say that the literature for the string quartet begins with Beethoven and ends with Bartók. In some of my more aggressively modernist moods, I might say that if you have Bartók's six, then you don't need anything more. If you can't tell, I place a lot of weight on those composers' oeuvres in the genre.

Quote from: Valentino on October 28, 2007, 02:26:15 PMMany good mentioned here, butMozart K. 421 is king!I shall not mention twelve, but eight, so I add:Haydn's op. 20 set, andDutilleux' "Ansi de la nuit".That's 8.
Quote from: Valentino on December 07, 2007, 10:00:13 AM9 now.I've made the aquaintance og Schubert's G-major D. 887.
Quote from: ChamberNut on December 07, 2007, 11:21:33 AMI'd also like to mention Schubert's String Quintet (or Cello Quintet, if you like), in C major D. 956 Now, I realize it's not a string quartet, but it is considered by some to be the greatest piece of chamber music ever created.Well, at least that's what Milton Berger says in the Guide to Chamber Music.It is wonderful! I have the Emerson String Quartet w/ Rostropovich on the 2nd cello. One of my favorite CD's!
