In this series, soloists and ensembles tease out the wit, warmth and wisdom of Haydn's music, pairing his greatest chamber works with pieces that bear the traces of his influence.

The Aris Quartet bring this BBC Radio 3 Haydn Plus concert series to a close, beginning with the great composer’s String Quartet Op 76 No 2, ‘Fifths’. A spiky first movement opens out into a serene Andante, before a gentle dance to end.

Then follows Beethoven’s String Quartet No 1 which, as it happens, was composed after his String Quartet No 2. Both Haydn and Beethoven demonstrate the harmonic richness of the string quartet.
