The String Quartet No. This work is the third of three of his " Razumovsky 2. Andante - Chopin*, Saint-Saëns*, Schumann* - Sviatoslav Richter - Concerto No. 2 / Concerto No. 5 cycle of string quartets, and is a product of his "middle" period.
It consists of Grazioso - Ludwig Van Beethoven - String Quartets Op. 132 & Op. 59 No. 3 movements:. The introductory andante con moto section of the first movement is not directly related to the rest of the movement and serves a similar function to the introduction of his Op. Thereafter, the movement's main thematic material is exposed and developed.
The relation or apparent lack thereof between the slow, sombre and dissonant introduction and the bright allegro which follows, is similar to what is found in Mozart 's "Dissonance" Quartetalso in the key of C. The quartet's second movement makes use of an augmented second in the descending scale first played by the first violin at the beginning of the movement.
This interval, repeated through the movement, gives it Menuetto association with the Hungarian scale. Unlike the other two opus 59 quartetsthis one does not have an explicit "Theme Russe" in any of its movements. Nevertheless, it can be argued that this second movement with its sparse texture and comfortless melodies, evokes a Russian feel by bringing to mind the vast, barren and desolate landscape of the Siberian tundra.
The quartet's third movement is a lighter menuetto which provides the motif that is subsequently turned upside down for the last movement, a fugal allegro molto that begins with the viola and adds the second violin, cello and first violin in that order.
The movement is in alla breve time and is almost a perpetuum mobile in quavers. The fugue is semi-rigorous, somewhere between the fugato of Mozart's string quartet K.
About halfway into the movement, a contrasting theme is introduced, which moves in minims. The movement concludes with an enormous Mannheim crescendopeaking at an implicit fff.
