Haydn Mega-Concert
St. Lawrence String Quartet

“No other North American quartet plays the music of Haydn with more intelligence, expressivity, and force,” says the New Yorker.

Since its founding in 1989, the St. Lawrence String Quartet has had an evangelical fervor for the music of Haydn; they think of the composer as a radical, passionate innovator. Haydn’s “Sun” Quartets, dazzling, virtuosic, powerfully emotional, and whimsical, set the course for all subsequent Western chamber music; Beethoven was in such awe of their mastery that he copied them all out by hand.

In this special immersive concert, the SLSQ performs all six of Haydn’s Op. 20 string quartets. First violinist Geoff Nuttall provides insightful commentary to accompany the performance.

Please note: this concert will be performed with two intermissions, including a meal break (dinner not included). Dining options will be sent to ticketholders in mid-November.
