A Haydn Retrospective

  • Advent Lutheran Church 2504 Broadway New York, NY 10025 United States (map)

This program follows the evolution of the string quartet through Haydn’s life by featuring works from the composer’s most beloved and influential quartet collections. Quartet in F minor, Op. 20. No. 5 introduces a new dynamic to the quartet by showcasing four independent voices. Nicknamed “The Joke,” Quartet in E-flat Major, Op. 33, No. 2 belongs to the opus that the composer himself described as being “written in a completely new and special style.” Three spirited chords open the Quartet in G Major, Op, 76, no. 1, the mature and last complete collection of quartets by Haydn.

Performed by The Cramer Quartet:
Jessica Park- violin, Alana Youssefian- violin, Stephen Goist- viola, Shirley Hunt- cello
