But for him the keys would be of universal, not personal, significance, with ‘The Representation of Chaos’ in C minor at the beginning, and God’s creation of Earth and Heaven – ‘The Heavens are telling the Glory of God’ – acclaimed in C major at the end. So he may have found the overtly personal emotions expressed by Beethoven in the outer movements of this trio uncomfortable and perhaps even inappropriate.

Led by Schuppanzigh, it was a unique ensemble, as three of its members had studied Haydn’s quartets with the composer himself and, of course, all four worked with Beethoven; indeed, the three op. 59 quartets were composed with them in mind. ’ 11 In addition to the three op. 59 quartets, Beethoven later dedicated the Fifth and Sixth symphonies jointly to Prince Razumovsky and Prince Lobkowitz.
