MOZART

String Quartet No. 15 in D minor K.421

HAYDN

String Quartet Op. 76 No. 4 (Sunrise)

BOCCHERINI

String Quartet Op. 8

The program brings together three virtuosic and beautiful works for string quartet. It opens with one of Boccherini’s string quartets from his Op. 8.

The program also includes Mozart’s beautiful and dark D minor string quartet. The work is one of his most famous and loved quartets. It is the second of a set of six quartets he dedicated to Haydn. Mozart wrote a touching letter to Haydn dedicating the works.

“To my dear friend Haydn,

A father who had resolved to send his children out into the great world took it to be his duty to confide them to the protection and guidance of a very celebrated Man, especially when the latter by good fortune was at the same time his best Friend. Here they are then, O great Man and dearest Friend, these six children of mine…”.

 The program concludes with one of Haydn’s indisputable works of genius, the string quartet Op. 76 No. 4 - The Sunrise. Although it was not nicknamed by Haydn himself, the opening bars of the quartet clearly evoke the image of daybreak.
