Save on Your Booking
Two great friends; four superb interpreters. Expect pure energy, as the award-winning Quatuor Van Kuijk launches our celebration of the string quartets of Mozart and Haydn.
When 18th century listeners heard the galloping rhythms that end Mozart’s ‘Hunt’ Quartet – or the bouncing energy that opens Haydn’s quartet Op 74 No 3 (specially written to amuse the British public) – they naturally imagined themselves on horseback. The chamber music of these two great friends spoke directly to its listeners, and it’s every bit as engaging and entertaining today.
That’s certainly the case when it’s played by Quatuor Van Kuijk – already familiar to London audiences as laureates of the ECHO Rising Stars series. ‘These four young Frenchmen made the music smile’ wrote The Guardian, and it’s hard to think of a better qualification to perform music as playful, as generous and inventive as the quartets of Mozart and Haydn.
I had no-one to copy, so I was forced to become original – Joseph Haydn
Recorded for future broadcast on BBC Radio 3
