Joseph Haydn: String Quartet in F major, Opus 77 No 2
Béla Bartók: String Quartet No 3, Sz 85
Ludwig van Beethoven: String Quartet Opus 59 No 2, “Razumovsky”
This venerable and much loved American ensemble returns (with new members) for the first time since 1983 in its ninth concert for the Friends. The current group will perform music by Haydn from later in his career (Opus 77 No 2), middle period music by Bartók (No 3, Sz 85), and one of Beethoven’s middle quartets (Opus 59 No 2, “Razumovsky”).
