Mozart and Haydn: A Friendship | Brompton String Quartet

Saturday 11th May 2024 , 11:00 am 12:00 pm

“A father, having resolved to send his children out into the world, felt that he should entrust them to the protection and guidance of a famous Man who by good fortune was also his best Friend.” These words of gracious thanks are those with which Mozart dedicates six of his string quartets to Joseph Haydn — the ‘father’ of the genre, and the man who inspired Wolfgang’s own quartet writing.

The fabulous Brompton Quartet perform Haydn’s Op.33 No.3 String Quartet in C Major, alongside Mozart’s ‘Dissonance’ Quartet, K.465, one of the six ‘Haydn Quartets’. Introduced from the stage with excerpts of letters and storytelling, spend your morning exploring the friendship between two of classical music’s most loved composers.
