Apollon Musagète Quartet

Haydn and Arensky


  • Apollon Musagète Quartet

Anton Arensky, best known today for his D minor Piano Trio, dedicated the second of his two string quartets to the memory of Tchaikovsky and built one of its movements around his late friend’s ‘Legend’ from Children’s Songs.

The Apollon Musagète Quartet prefaces Arensky’s impassioned composition with Haydn’s evergreen ‘Lark’ Quartet.
