Juan Arriaga y Balzola was known as the ‘Spanish Mozart’- not just because he was born exactly fifty years after Mozart, but because he was also considered to be a prodigy composer from an early age. Tragically he died at nineteen years old, and thus is as much recognised for his potential as his actual compositions. Arriaga’s String Quartet No. 3 in Eb Major boldly challenges the Haydn-Mozart models to align more closely with the harmonic style of Louis Spohr. Composed when Arriaga was just seventeen, the subjects of each movement vary dramatically from lyrical to intensely driven. Continuing on the theme of child prodigies, the program returns with Felix Mendelssohn’s String Quartet No. 2 in A minor (Op. 13). Actually the first string quartet by Mendelssohn (although published second), the work has influences of Beethoven throughout, and is most noted for the child-like fervour in its melodic themes.
