History records Haydn as the ‘father of the string quartet’, a title reinforced by the test of time. Wigmore Hall’s Haydn String Quartet Series, performed by an irresistible line-up of world-class ensembles, spans the full range of the composer’s invention, from the early Op. 20 compositions to his late masterworks of the 1790s.

This series is made possible with additional support from the Haydn String Quartet Circle and the Wigmore Hall Endowment Fund
