Just about everyone who listens to music will be lured into the game of genre-labelling. This is jazz. That is pop. This is rock. That is classical. This is electronic. Before you know it, you're talking in sub-genres: Illbient; Djent; Dark Jazz; Hypnagogic pop. On it goes. Viennese-based radio.string.quartet (Two Austrian, one Taiwanese and one Dutch) have conveniently offered a marvelously inconvenient word for their music: Crossover Jazz Classic Pop Fusion RockN ew Electronic Music".

The Escher Quartet opened their traversal of Mendelssohn’s string quartets with the first and the fourth quartet, along with an unnumbered early work in E flat major, on a disc which the reviewer in The Strad summed up as a ‘A deeply rewarding release … and by any standards a distinguished one.’ The same magazine made the sequel – with the second and third quartets – its recommendation in the November issue of 2015, while the reviewer on MusicWeb-International found the performances on that disc to be ‘some of the most beautiful string quartet playing I have heard in many a day’. On the third and final disc in the series, time has come for the two final quartets, as well as the Capriccio and Fugue from the set of Four Pieces for String Quartet, Op. 81 begun on the previous instalment.

This release sees the respected US-based chamber ensemble the Arianna String Quartet present Beethoven's five "middle period" quartets. Opening with the invigorating and lyrical String Quartet No. 7 in F Major, the Quartet tackle all three of the “Rasumovsky” quartets, written at the behest of the Russian patron of Beethoven and members of the string quartet that premiered these works. These varied and stylistically boundary-pushing pieces are then followed by the String Quartets Nos. 10 and 11, nicknamed the “Harp” and “Serioso” respectively, all of which are performed with fire and the utmost nuance by the world-class Arianna musicians.
