    The E-flat Major String Quartet, Op. 127, is a key work not only in Beethoven's œuvre but in the entire history of the genre. The first of the late quartets, it "transfers the formal and symbolic aspects of his two major works for chorus and orchestra [the Missa solemnis and the Ninth Symphony] to the more intimate domain of chamber music" (William Kinderman).
