Best String Quartets?

feels like a classical day. Listening to Ravel's string quartet in F atm, and it inspired me to make this list. Here are some string quartets I like given my limited knowledge of the genre. would love some recs. What are your favorite string quartets? any other chamber works or classical is fine too but mostly looking for string quartet/string quintets. cheers!
1Maurice Ravel
String Quartet in F Major

gorgeous piece of work. his concertos are worth checking out as well
2Franz Schubert
String Quartet No. 14 (Death and the Maiden)

the one everyone should already know
3Antonin Dvorak
String Quartet No. 12 ("The American")

like many people, my introduction to Dvorak was his 9th symphony, but he's become one of my favorite composers overall. Some great symphonies, concertos, and this here string quartet
4Felix Mendelssohn
String Quartet No. 6, Op. 80

nice quartet by Mendelssohn. Haven't heard his other quartets yet, but I've heard all his symphonies.
5Franz Schubert
String Quartet No. 13 in A Minor, D.804, Op.29

it's not only his famous death and the maiden string quartet that's fantastic. Schubert is one of the kings of chamber music. There's vey little I've heard from him I didn't enjoy to some extent.
