    8. Australian String Quartet - Boundless Here are three masterpieces, from arguably the three greatest composers for the string quartet. Haydn's op 77 number one is the grand, crowning achievement of a life inventing, exploring and perfecting the genre. Written ten years later, in Beethoven's middle period, the Serioso quartet is all fire and crystal whilst remaining compositionally one of the strictest and most tightly structured works he ever wrote.
    9. Australian String Quartet - Relativity The Mendelssohn family were pioneers in the presentation, preservation and creation of music. The most modern works imaginable and the most newly revived older works were performed side by side in their house concerts in the early 19th century. Not only were Felix and Fanny's extraordinary gifts as performers, composers and programmers discovered and developed in these performances, but the revival of the then-forgotten JS Bach began there too.

Australian String Quartet - Speechless In the days of Mozart and Haydn, chamber-scale reductions of symphonies gave musicians who couldn't assemble an entire orchestra and choir together, the opportunity to play and perform larger masterpieces. After Mozart's death, Peter Lichtenthal distilled Mozart's Requiem into a wordless string quartet masterwork, transforming it from profoundly religious into a beautiful work of art.
