This is a good "interpretation" of the Serioso, particularly of the 1st movement and Beethoven's approach to music, in general:

What? Pick it up where U can. So many good versions of the quartets. I'm just noting the ones that strike me as exceptional right off the bat and giving them a few listens. Can't listen to em all! :)
