Mozart in Beethoven's hands

Beethoven SQ5

Continuing Classical MPR's exploration of the first published string quartets by Beethoven, this week's Regional Spotlight includes the Beethoven String Quartet No. 5. Modeled after one of Beethoven's favorite Mozart quartets (which Beethoven himself copied by hand), the Beethoven Op 18 No. 5 is a romp of a work.

The Miró Quartet certainly think so. Here's their performance from a Chamber Music Society of St Cloud concert.
