The Quatuor Mosaïques, founded by four principals from Nikolaus Harnoncourt’s Concentus musicus Wien, is one of the most renowned string quartets playing on period instruments. The name was inspired by cellist Christophe Coin as a musical concept, and in this sense, the quartet has an eye for detail as well as for the overall picture, putting together a dazzling mosaic stone by stone in their finely tuned interplay. Their appearance at Gödens Castle places Beethoven’s companions and influencers in a charming context. Born in Prague, Anton Reicha spent his youth in Bonn and became friends with Beethoven, who was the same age. The two both played in the court orchestra while they were in the city where the cello virtuoso Bernhard Romberg was also engaged from 1790. Haydn’s last string quartet of 1803 (which remained unfinished) is tantalizingly close to Beethoven. The Quartet in E-flat Major, composed in 1809 and named for the harp-like pizzicato effects in the first movement, emphasises melody — superficially, at least — and captivates listeners with its almost orchestral sound.
