The Australian Haydn Quartet Concert
Sunday, January 19, 4 to 5 pm
The Australian Haydn Quartet is a period instrument group specializing in chamber music and string orchestral music of the classical era. They will present a program of classical string quartet pieces played in period style – meaning on original instruments in the style intended by the composers. At the heart of The Australian HaydnEnsemble is a core of remarkably talented, enthusiastic, and dynamic permanent members, each of whom is a specialist in historical performance practice. Their collaboration of highly experienced artists results in a powerful strength of tone, a delicacy of execution and breaths vitality into works of the Classical and early Romantic Period. They aim to present creative programs, re-igniting the personalities and life philosophies of the composers that existed behind the music both known and unknown in a 21st-century context. The Ensemble brings together a wealth of expertise of first class Period and Modern ensembles and orchestras from all over the world. Registration strongly suggested. Pre-registrants should arrive by 3:50 to be guaranteed seating; wait-listed and walk-in registrants will be admitted after 3:50 if space is available.
