Program

In the late 18th century, Joseph Haydn was nicknamed "Papa Haydn”. The musicians who worked for him gave him the nickname, probably to highlight the wisdom and benevolence that he was known for. However, this expression is also often used to introduce the composer as the father of the symphony and also of the string quartet. On this occasion, Aris Quartett will perform the second and fourth quartets of the Op series. 76, which is one of the last that Haydn composed, when he was already in his last years. It was dedicated to Count Erdödy. The second quartet is called the "Quinten" in reference to the falling perfect fifths that open the first movement and dominate the whole work. The fourth quartet, on the other hand, begins with a rising theme from sustained chords that open the work. This rising theme gives the piece its nickname: "Sunrise".
