With WQXR's live string quartet marathon coming up this Sunday, today’s Showdown pitted examples of Beethoven’s chamber music. We asked if you prefer Beethoven performed by two, three or four and which of these gems of the chamber music repertoire you wanted to hear.
At noon, we played Beethoven's Piano Trio No. 7 in B-Flat Major, Op. 97 "Archduke" performed by Daniel Barenboim, Pinchas Zukerman and Jacqueline du Pre.
