Haydn

String Quartet no. 33, op. 33/6

Gubaidulina

String Quartet no. 2

NB This programme has been changed.

Haydn’s string quartets are in fact the essence of the string quartet genre, which is why his quartets pair well with almost everything. The contrast between Sofia Gubaidulina’s string qaurtet and Haydn’s String Quartet opus 33 no. 6 not only works well, but is in fact the perfect embodiment of Haydn’s vision of the String Quartet: anything is possible. Wherever we come from and however diverse our music may sound, Haydn has given us the means to express ourselves through the string quartet.

The Early Haydn is like the first cup of coffee of the day. Haydn's playful music transports you to 18th-century Vienna: wigs, ball gowns, golden halls… But Haydn also stimulates the intellect. The ease with which he allowed the four voices of the string quartet to converse with each other was innovative. Around 1781 he surprised his audience time and time again, now we mostly hear the brilliant foundation he laid single-handedly for the string quartet that followed for almost 250 years.
