To you string quartet lovers! You did not wait in vain. Indeed, with this publication quartets in C sharp minor op. 131 and in A minor op. 132, Henle launches Beethoven's series of late string quartets, according to the only authoritative Urtext version, that of the complete edition of Beethoven's Works. It goes without saying that the utmost care has been taken to facilitate page changes. At the same time, the quartets appear in the form of "study sections", identical in text. The publisher, Emil Platen, comments in detail on each of these editions in a preface, in the form of explanatory notes as well as in the context of detailed remarks. Editions G. Henle will publish later, as part of a complete edition, all late quartets of the composer. Franz Beyer, the string quartet leader, about this novelty: "The most important edition published in the world over the past two decades!"
