The present recording features both one of the longest and one of the shortest quartets in the string quartet repertoire. There is no denying that Schubert's last string quartet is great in every sense of the word, but Beethoven's "Quartetto Serioso", although minor in size, is by no means dwarfed by it when it comes to sheer artistic quality; both quartets are indeed major works and a staple on the diet of any string quartet of merit. Even so, the concept of minor and major immediately springs to mind when contemplating putting these two completely different masterpieces on the same album. Duration apart, there is the obvious question of tonality: one work in F minor, the other in G major, which is simple enough and by itself justifies the album title. But things get more complicated the moment we subject the two works to a closer scrutiny.
