First heard against legato undulations on the cello, this second theme is shared in imitation between the violins, and in the development becomes a contrapuntal passage in fugato style; this alternates with a gentler episode which later combines with the first theme to begin the final build-up. The String Quintet Op. Composed in only a year after the completion of the Op. In the opening Allegro moderato this spaciousness is reflected in the cantabile main theme, exploiting the sonorous possibilities provided by the extra instrument as the theme is rescored at its first repetition.

Another possibility is revealed by the second theme unusually in A major rather than the expected dominant key of G with the melody first lightly scored, then imitated by the lower instruments. The Adagio molto espressivo is similarly expansive, its Italianate melodies richly ornamented, and coloured and re-coloured by imaginative scoring the pizzicato chording for the second violin, for example, at the reprise of the main theme.
The Scherzo develops a three-note arpeggio motif from the second bar, at first playfully, later with leaping energy over an emphatic drone bass. The Trio is more relaxed, with a billowing rising arpeggio as its theme; in the second half the tonality swerves from F to D flat, with an insistent unison ostinato pinned by further drone harmonies in the second viola.
Even more surprising is the interruption of the storm by a minuet in exaggeratedly whimsical style, first in A, later in C, before a final tonal twist sees Beethoven beginning the sprint to the line with a swerve to A flat, the key of the second theme. The A minor is the second of the three quartets commissioned by Prince Nicholas Galitzin, and was composed during the first half of The celebrated third movement was written at Baden where Beethoven was recuperating from a serious intestinal inflammation.
The motto is heard in the mysterious introduction, swept away by the impassioned cadenza, which leads into the strangely agitated main theme, underpinned by the motto in long notes passed between the accompanying instruments in the manner of a cantus firmus. The central development varies and deepens the relationship between theme and motto, before a double recapitulation, with the theme and contrasting second subject heard in E minor and C major respectively, then balanced by a return to the tonic key. The main theme undergoes a final transformation, with the motto dispersed starkly through the texture — F cello , E viola , G sharp second violin , A cello — initiating a powerfully scored coda that seems to hover between desperation and defiance.
If the first movement takes its cue from Bach, the second is a distant echo of Mozart A major Quartet, K, a work that Beethoven is known to have admired and studied, and which had already influenced the A major quartet, Op. The music is somewhere between scherzo and minuet, uneasy in its elegance and obsessive interplay of motif.
The Trio is a different kind of dance, an evocation of folk fiddling, at first over a glassy open-string drone, then with the melody broken up over spiky chords, with the changes of harmony tugging at our sense of the barline, so that upbeats become downbeats. The vision is abruptly dispelled in a swaggering little march, almost shocking in its self assurance, followed immediately by a melodramatic recitative.

Both are stepping-stones to addressing, in the finale, the questions left by the anguished end to the first movement. As the first violin approaches the cadence its line dwells on the paired semitones of the motto, G sharp—A and F—E, the latter taken up by the second violin as part of the insistent accompaniment to the theme of the finale.
