Two nights of string quartets fit for a king, by Haydn and Mozart, pinnacles of the Neo-Classical era. The central hymn from Haydn’s Emperor Quartet was the national anthem of Austria for a time, while Mozart’s Prussian Quartets, written with the Prussian King’s interest in the cello in mind, were published two weeks after his premature death.

Open Rehearsal:

  • 12 Aug, 10am | For Friends of the SSO and ticketholders
    (Tickets will be issued for admission from the atrium. First 20 who arrive will get to experience the rehearsal on stage!)

If Mozart had written nothing but his violin quartets and the Requiem, they alone would have been sufficient to make him immortal.
