These works of Beethoven’s final years attain such a rarefied atmosphere of harmonic daring and structural density that most composers who followed him were at a loss to know what to make of them. It is their modernity and symphonic structure that the Borodin Quartet so memorably captures here. Other ensembles may be more intensely claustrophobic, but the Borodin’s boldness never fails to command the attention.
