ENCOUNTER II Haydn’s String Quartets


Atherton, CA, United States

This is a past event


Haydn’s corpus of nearly 70 string quartets testifies to his standing as the genre’s foundational figure. Without question, the quartets of Mozart, Beethoven, Schubert, and all who have followed over the subsequent two centuries descend from those of Haydn. At this summer’s second Encounter, violinist Aaron Boyd gets under the hood of Haydn’ string quartets, illuminating the compose’s singular ingenuity in this form. This event features live musical illustrations performed by a quartet of festival artists. This Encounter lecture is preceded by a free afternoon Prelude Performance at 5 p.m. by the 2022 International Program artists. Prelude programs will be announced in May.
