QUARTET PARTY

Composer and violinist Louis Spohr toured Europe giving public performances and home recitals, where he appeared with string quartets formed by the best local musicians in each community. At these ‘quartet parties’ held in the salons of music lovers, Spohr featured not only his own works but also the string quartets of his close friend Ludwig van Beethoven. The radically new idiom of these works was often considered difficult and revolutionary by performers and listeners alike.
