Beethoven's String Quartet in F, Op. 135

Michael Steinberg writes of the above section (from the Vivace):

Then it is time for Beethoven to turn to one of his favourite tricks, the one where he simply picks up an idea boldly and puts it down again on another pitch the way you might pick up your cat and move it from your favourite chair to another.

I am fully in favour of this feline-oriented musical interpretation.
