The fifth volume of the Complete Beethoven String Quartets from Quartetto di Cremona features the String Quartet No. 15, Opus 132 and the only original String Quintet, Opus 29 by the Bonn master. Lawrence Dutton, the violist of the Emerson String Quartet, joins the group for this new release.
WBAA Music Director John Clare had a chance to talk with the quartet’s violist Simone Gramaglia about the new cd, adding a guest to the mix, and how things have changed over a few years.
This new release on Audite records will be available in April, and can be heard on WBAA Classical.
