Beethoven’s B-flat-major quartet shattered tradition with six movements, including the profoundly beautiful Cavatina. The original ending, the Grosse Fuge, was deemed too momentous for an already overpowering work and now stands alone in the repertoire. The “indispensable” Emerson String Quartet (Newsday) performs both pieces along with Shostakovich’s Thirteenth Quartet, a surreal piece in which simplicity becomes sonically extraordinary.
