Label: Naxos
The Kolady Quartet brings the ornery feel of mid-period Beethoven into full color in their working of op. 59 no. 1. The second movement starts daintily, with hints of Russian folk melodies interspersed, but each reiteration of the theme gets more aggressive. In 1806, these quartets pushed at the limits of audience and performer, and Kolady works well in that spirit.
