If you didn’t like those mid period string quartets I wouldn’t recommend any others. I think that part of his output should really be considered as a whole with the late ones the culmination.

I’m not a fan of his symphonies but I think it’s the most accessible for the beginner (not meant as a put down).

Mozart died young and many of his works are marked by the cheekiness of youth. Where Beethoven excels is in his mature works composed later in life but even his early quartets are extremely fresh and a good representation of some of the best of the Viennese school of the latter half of the eighteenth century.
