 Haydn’s elegant String Quartet in G Major, Op. 33, No. 5 opens a vivacious programme.

This work inspired Mozart and impressed royalty, and Haydn’s musical wit and boundless inventiveness is undeniable. The musical line-up also features Russian composer Shostakovich’s String Quartet No. 12, a work that rewards listeners with its exceptional expressiveness. Shostakovich’s string quartets have been described as miniature symphonies and String Quartet No. 12 proves no exception, bursting with grand textures and contrasts. The lustrous colours of Ravel’s String Quartet in F Major add unmistakable French flair to the programme. Ravel’s music fuses the atmospheric tones of Javanese Gamelan with the clarity of French Baroque masters - come and experience the dynamism of this music for yourself!
