The opening bars of the first movement from a 19th-century publication

Ludwig van Beethoven's String Quartet No. 4, Op. 18, No. 4 in C minor (1798–1800) was published in 1801. It consists of four movements:

  1. Allegro ma non tanto (C minor)
  2. Andante scherzoso quasi allegretto (C major)
  3. Menuetto: Allegretto (C minor)
  4. Allegro – Prestissimo (C minor)

It is thought that this quartet may be in part based upon earlier material.[1]
