I presume you refer to Beethoven's Opus 132 in A minor, the third
movement of which (entitled "thanksgiving on recovery from illness") is
written in the Lydian tonality (F major without B flat). The quartet has
a certain relevance to literature, since it almost certainly influenced
T. S. Eliot (who mentions it in a letter to Stephen Spender), while if I
remember correctly the third movement provides the musical accompaniment
to Spandrell's death in Huxley's "Point Counter Point".

To H.R. Greenberg,

You are looking for Beethoven's String Quartet in A minor, op. 132
("Song of Praise to God in the Lydian Mode").  Actually, it is only the
slow movement that is written in Lydian Mode.

3rd Movement of Beethoven's Quartet No15 in A minor, Opus 132, is
composed in the Lydian mode.  Is this what you wanted to know?
