- Arcanto Quartet
Four outstanding string soloists have found artistic communion as partners in the Arcanto Quartet, founded in 2002 and recently praised by the Daily Telegraph for the ‘freshness, close rapport, finesse, and … blend of eloquence and vitality’ of their performances. Haydn created his Seven Last Words from the Cross in the mid-1780s as an orchestral piece for the Good Friday service at Cadiz Cathedral. The work’s string quartet version offers a sublime meditation on Christ’s Passion.
Joseph Haydn (1732-1809 )
