Carducci String Quartet
This event was streamed live from Wigmore Hall on Monday 28 September 2020
The nickname for Haydn’s Op. 33 No. 2 comes from the composer wrong-footing his audience, especially in its sequence of false endings. The Carducci String Quartet combine it here with Shostakovich’s Ninth String Quartet, influenced by the famous gallop from Rossini’s William Tell Overture.
