This is the second round of Haydn and Mozart Quartets to be played at Eelswamp. Last year we had early quartets. This year we will hear middle period works. From Haydn we will hear two of the six opus 50 quartets; the two with silly nicknames 'Dream' and 'Frog'. Both follow the fast, slow, minuet, fast structure. Both have exquisite slow movements and exciting finales.
Mozart's D minor quartet is the second of the six quartets dedicated to Haydn. This is one of Mozart's most popular quartets, written in four movements. It begins with a rather dark and mysterious first movement and ends with a sophisticated set of variations.
The program has a fine balance: two light and exuberant Haydn quartets and one dark and serious work of Mozart. Book now by emailing asiachart(at)hotmail.com.
