In the second of its Late Beethoven string quartet series, the Villiers Quartet presents Beethoven’s final string quartet, most famous for its finale which contrasts motives based on a question (“Muß es sein?”) and an affirmative answer (“Es muß sein”). This work is contrasted with the vibrantly rhythmic second quartet of Jamaican-born British composer, Eleanor Alberga, and Mozart’s haunting and exploratory ‘Dissonance’ quartet.
