Though well known as the “father” of the string quartet, Haydn is all too often overshadowed by his successors: Beethoven, Brahms, Shostakovich, etc. The St. Lawrence String Quartet is here to set things straight, turning the spotlight on the composer’s genius and wit. In one of its creative “Discovery” programs, the award-winning ensemble reveals the inner workings of Haydn’s Op. 20, No. 3, one of the works that would define the string quartet genre for generations. After the initial performance broadcast, the ensemble answers listener questions in a virtual audience reception.
Tickets: $15 / $20 with reception | Free for UChicago Students
Concert stream available from 7:00 pm CST on Friday until 11:59 pm CST on Sunday. The “Package” includes access to a digital artist reception via Zoom immediately following the initial stream on Friday night.
