HAYDN DISCOVERY: OP. 20, NO. 3 WITH THE ST. LAWRENCE STRING QUARTET
FEBRUARY 5 - 7 | $15, $20 with reception | ONLINE
Though well known as the "father" of the string quartet, Haydn is all too often overshadowed by his successors: Beethoven, Brahms, Shostakovich, etc. The St. Lawrence String Quartet is here to set things straight, turning the spotlight on the composer's genius and wit. In one of its unique "Discovery" programs, the award-winning ensemble reveals the inner workings of Haydn's quartet in G minor, Op. 20, No. 3, one of the works that would define the string quartet genre for generations. After the initial performance broadcast, the ensemble answers listener questions in a virtual audience reception. This concert is partially supported by Hanna Holborn Gray.
