The article discusses the collaboration of violinist Ignaz Schuppanzigh and songwriter Ludwig van Beethoven to compose their late quartets, from op. 18 through op. 135, in Germany. It outlines the first performances of the late quartets of Beethoven within the context of Schuppanzigh's concert series. It notes the significance of Schuppanzigh's series in illustrating the truism that classical music served as a creation of romanticism. It also puts emphasis on the performance of Schuppanzigh during a difficult concert life transition in Vienna and West Germany.
