Beethoven: The Late Quartets. This 2017 release by Austria's Quatuor Mosaïques is actually the second in a series; the first box, covering Beethoven's early quartets, appeared in 1994. Whether they thought about the difficult late quartets for 23 years or other projects simply intervened, this volume has been worth the wait. The middle quartets are apparently still to come. As before, the Quatuor Mosaïques uses gut strings and historically authentic bows, as well as a tuning slightly below the usual A 440.
Composed By – Ludwig van Beethoven. Ensemble – Quatuor Mosaïques. Recording Date: August 29, 2014 - August 31, 2014 Recording Location: Mozart-Saal, Wiener Konzerthaus (Austria).
Album · 2017 · 26 Songs. The Mosaïques have lived long with these pieces, and it shows in every bar-it all feels so right. Nothing is done for show; everything to dig deeper into music that seems to gaze down into the abyss or up to the heavens. Beethoven: The Late Quartets, Op. 127 - 135 Quatuor Mosaïques. Listen on Apple Music.
The Legendary Quatuor Mosaïques celebrates its 30th anniversary with a fabulous return to disc: the immense and demanding Everest of the last string quartets of Beethoven. The late string quartets are themselves exceptional: metaphysical masterpieces in which almost all of human emotion and pioneering musical concepts exist. The cycle represents a unique entity in the entire history of music. The Quatuor Mosaïques, performing on period instruments,delivers stunning and rarely equalled performances, perfectly balanced between purity, precision and a sublime harmonic richness.
Playing with gut strings and on early 19th century-design bows, Quatuor Mosaïques bring warmth and subtlety to these fascinating works, but the set doesn’t quite sit alongside the greatest recordings.

The Quatuor Mosaïques is an Austrian string quartet, founded in 1987 by four members of the Concentus Musicus Wien, playing on historical musical instruments. They specialize in music of the 18th century and their Haydn recordings have received critical acclaim, including several Gramophone Awards. The three Austrian musicians and the French cellist Christophe Coin got to know each other in Vienna as members of Nikolaus Harnoncourt’s Concentus Musicus.
Although Quatuor Mosaiques are among my very favourite quartets, I'm not wholly convinced by this set. I think their Mozart and Haydn recordings in particular are outstanding, with a wonderful balance between formality and emotion. Here, I'm not sure that balance is quite so well struck
