Music IC: Homage to Haydn

  • Trinity Episcopal Church 320 E College Street Iowa City, Iowa 52240 (map)

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”
