Ironwood: Prussian Frogs & Bohemian Princes

Divine and distinctive string quartets by Haydn and Beethoven. Haydn’s opus 50 quartets were dedicated to the Prussian King Frederick William II, with number 6 nicknamed as ‘The Frog’ after a special ‘bariolage’ effect in its final movement. Beethoven’s opus 18 string quartets were commissioned by the Bohemian prince Joseph Franz von Lobkowitz, and are widely acclaimed as some of the finest chamber works ever written.
