Ludwig van Beethoven’s Quartet in C# minor, Op. 131, is a landmark work in the string quartet repertoire for its incredible structural cohesion and its depth of emotion and imagination. The structure, seven movements played without pause, lends an unprecedented continuous narrative to the piece. Beethoven composed Op. 131 in his difficult, final years and the work is truly transcendent.

On a personal note, this piece is especially remarkable to us for its embodiment of unity and equality between the four voices that create a sum far greater than its parts. Each time we sit down to play together, our goal is to realize these ideals and there is no other piece that showcases them more powerfully.

—Rachel Henderson Freivogel, cellist of the Jasper String Quartet

Recorded November 2 & 3, 2013 at Sono Luminus Studios in Boyce, Virginia.
