Music of Haydn, Beethoven, and Mozart
Since its founding in 2000, the London Haydn Quartet has rapidly built a reputation as one of the most exciting and innovative string quartets in the world, focusing on period-instrument interpretations of classical repertoire. They make their BEMF début in a program featuring delightful and lyrical string quartets by Haydn and Beethoven alongside Mozart’s Clarinet Quintet in A, which is performed on the basset clarinet. Don’t miss a truly rare opportunity to hear this quintet played using the instrument for which it was written, featuring the virtuoso who has pioneered its modern-day rediscovery, Eric Hoeprich.
