String Quartet No. 1 in F Major, Op. 18 & String Quartet No. 16 in F Major, Op. 135

This program features two string quartets in the key of F Major, his first and last.  Socially defiant and temperamentally fiery, Beethoven’s Op. 18 string quartets mark the early years of his career ascent and show us a Beethoven full of youthful swagger and passion. It is with the publication of these extraordinary early string quartets that we see the passing of the compositional torch from Haydn to Beethoven as the younger man’s compositions begin where the older master’s works end.

Music IC: Homage to Haydn

We kick off our residency at Tricia's fabulous chamber music festival dedicated to the intersection of music and literature with a program centered around Haydn.  Considered ‘Father of the String Quartet’ Haydn’s elevates the medium to such heights that it becomes the ultimate form in which a composer may demonstrate his or her purest artistic skill. In this program, Haydn’s last completed string quartet is presented alongside Haydn-inspired string quartets by Caroline Shaw and Mozart.

  • Haydn String Quartet in F Major, Op. 77 No. 2
  • Caroline Shaw Entr’acte for String Quartet (2011)
  • Mozart String quartet No. 19 in C Major, K. 465 “Dissonance”
