Osvaldo Golijov Tenebrae (Version II)
Haydn String Quartet in B minor op 33 no 1
Dan Potter Swell Piece (world premiere)
Piazzolla (arr Voirpy) Histoire du Tango
Often referred to as the 'father of the string quartet', it was with opus 33 that Haydn truly mastered the form. This new concert series explores a different string quartet each evening.
In the first quartet of the set, hear the music move from a brief Scherzo to a slow, stately dance before climaxing in a breathless Presto that demands technical brilliance from the first violin.
