Widely considered to be the greatest exponents of Haydns work in the world today, the London Haydn Quartet has spent more than a decade reinvigorating the composers reputation and sound, bringing his peerless music to new audiences around the globe. With their gutbowed period instruments and dazzling interpretations of familiar classics, they play the masters opuses as they were meant to be played: full of color, texture, and verve, soaring with virtuosity and unexpected thrills.
Formed in 2000, the London Haydn Quartet has gone on to receive invitations to many of the most important concert series in Canada, the United States and Europe. Their series of recordings of Haydns quartets on the Hyperion label have met with international critical acclaim. The quartet has given recitals of all-Haydn programmes at New Yorks Carnegie Hall, and numerous festivals throughout the UK.
For this MITM performance, the quartet will perform Haydns String Quartet Op. 76, No. 5, and will be joined by Eric Hoeprich, one of the worlds leading early clarinet specialists, for a performance of Mozarts magnificent Clarinet Quintet.
