Joseph Haydn and the Consequences

With the experimental ‘sun quartets’ of Opus 20, Joseph Haydn actually created the new genre – the enormous consequences are well known. Long after the genre had become ‘classical’, Shostakovich applied himself to it, surprisingly late, and, of all things, with a carefree work in C major! With Stalin firmly entrenched, the age of ‘revolution’ was well and truly over. The evening is rounded off by one of Schubert’s masterly late works played by the young musicians of the Schumann Quartet – winners of the Jürgen Ponto-Stiftung Music Prize.
