Like many musical projects planned for 2020, the plans of the Ehnes Quartet to record Beethoven's late quartets underwent a drastic revision. Rather than cancel the project, some ingenious technology was employed. They were able to record in the USA with producer Simon Kiln monitoring the sessions in real time from London. A fortunate benefit of not traveling overseas was that the scheduled travel days became additional recording days, allowing them to record all of Beethoven's string quartets from Op.74 onwards. The four albums made during this intense two-week period will be treasured reminders for the quartet of a brief, bucolic window of artistic fulfilment during a terribly challenging period for the world.
