Edward Dusinberre ↠ 9 REVIEW REVIEW å Beethoven for a Later Age: The Journey of a String uartet N exhilarating challenge Beethoven for a Later Age takes the reader inside the life of a uartet vividly showing how four people enjoy making music together over a long period of time The key the author argues is in balancing continuity with change and experimentation a theme that also lies at the heart of Beethoven's remarkable composition Page 42Up to know I have viewed the concert as the end product of many hours of work after which I would move on to study a new piece But the constant debates in the Takacs about phrasing tempo and character altered my sense of the relationship between rehearsals and concerts Both now seeming part of an ongoing exploration of the musicPage 77As we drove across Europe the Hungarians described with zest previous setbacks on the road When the old uartet car reassuringly also a Ford Granada burst into flames on the French motorway the alacrity with which they extricated themselves and instruments was a source of pride the sort of experience that added spice to touring life Driving a hundred miles in the wrong direction from Vermont only to be alerted to their mistake by the surprising presence of Canadian customs officials was a digression that merely added to the adventure

Edward Dusinberre ↠ 9 REVIEW REVIEW å Beethoven for a Later Age: The Journey of a String uartet Linist of the Takács since 1993 recounts the life of the uartet from its inception in Hungary through emigration to the US and its present day life as one of the world's renowned string uartets He also describes what it was like for him as a young man fresh out of the Juilliard School to join the uartet as its first non Hungarian member a This is a book I think for a rather specific audience It is written by the first violinist of the renowned Takacs String uartet and it revolves around the string uartets of Beethoven from the early Opus 18 through the groundbreaking forward thinking late uartets There is some personal reflections on the part of the author and there is much technical exposition of rehearsing and playing the uartets as well as historical information about Beethoven I found the book utterly fascinating and illuminating at times and rather tedious at others It was not a book that I anxiously anticipated getting back into yet I did have some wonderful moments with it His description of the uartet analyzing and performing the luminous slow movement from Beethoven s late a minor uartet one of the most gloriously beautiful movements of music ever composed IMHO was captivating and revealing I also really enjoyed the author s commentary on his working with the other members of the uartet especially his feelings upon first joining the uartet Here was a well established string uartet all the members speaking Hungarian with limited English skills auditioning and accepting an English violinist with limited Hungarian speaking skills And he was auditioning for the first violin position which is essentially the leader of the groupI am a composer and I have studied music history and theory and even I found some of the book to be a bit too intricate in the descriptions of the composed music and the musicians technical and interpretive problems However the moments that struck gold for me were well worth the journey of this unusual memoir and music history account
