Haydn is often referred to as "the father of the string quartet". His stylistic development of the genre reached a new pinnacle with the Op. 76 quartets which represent some of his most stunning work. Dedicated to Count Erdődy, they reflect progress towards a much more equal footing between the four players, rather than the focus on the first violin as the main soloist.
 The Ensemble presents two quartets from his Opus 76. No. 2 also known as the Fifths,…

“Satisfyingly epic” is the best way to describe Beethoven’s String Quartet Op. 130, while Schubert’s singular movement Quartettsatz is a tantalising episode. In this exploration between macro and micro, we interplay scale and form in a thought-provoking and moving curation.
