Melbourne Chamber Orchestra (MCO): Haydn, Martin & Beethoven
Sat 26 March @ 14:30 - 15:30$20 – $50
To hear Beethoven’s early works is to understand what the fuss is about. Beethoven’s first-numbered quartet is no timid sophomore effort: it instantly announces the composer’s right to a place in the Pantheon of quartet composers.
Against the ambition and ardour of the younger Beethoven, we set the mature artistry of Haydn, whose 80-odd quartets established the genre. Haydn’s first Opus 71 quartet brings us effortless charm and musical mischief. Violinist Alexandra Osborne joins musicians of MCO for this performance.
