"A story, a song, a dance and a party", each a fitting metaphor for life. Joseph Haydn's String Quartet Op. 64 No. 5 nicknamed "The Lark" encapsulates the essence of each tale in four exquisite movements, an optimistic wave at freedom as he left the Esterhazy court for London. Considered the father of string quartets, Haydn's virtuosity is revealed in the dazzling String Quartet Op. 54 No. 3. The programme also features one of Mozart's greatest chamber works, the Clarinet Quintet in A Major, K.581, its radiance a facade of his misery during one of his most difficult times. This charming programme is brought to you by one of the world's leading period instrument string quartets, the London Haydn Quartet.

The London Haydn Quartet was born out of a passion for Haydn. The quartet’s series of recordings of Haydn’s quartets on the Hyperion label (the op 9, op 17, op 20, op 33, op 50 and op 54/55 quartets to date) have met with international critical acclaim. The quartet has given recitals of all-Haydn programmes at New York’s Carnegie Hall, the Cheltenham Festival, Utrecht Festival, Bath Mozartfest, Klara Festival the Granada International Festival and at Haydn festivals in Esterhazy, Lincoln and Lyon and the English Haydn Festival.
