Haydn Quartet in E flat, Op. 76 No. 6 (‘Fantasia’)
Bartók Quartet No. 3
Quartet in B flat, Op. 130, with Grosse Fuge finale, Op. 133

We start the series with our ‘dream programme’: Haydn, Bartók and Beethoven. In each part of his late quartet Haydn takes the simplest of ideas and works magic. Bartók’s third quartet fits into seventeen minutes an extraordinary range of moods, from great beauty through to ferocity. Beethoven’s Op. 130, with its original final movement – the incredible, exhilarating and revolutionary Grosse Fuge – stands out as a towering masterpiece.
