Chiaroscuro Quartet

Haydn and Schubert


  • Chiaroscuro Quartet

Dedicated to Grand Duke Paul of Russia – hence their collective nickname as the ‘Russian’ quartets – Haydn’s Op. 33 shows the composer wrong-footing his audience, especially in No. 2’s sequence of false endings, here succeeded by Mozart’s sublime quintet.

  • Joseph Haydn (1732-1809)
        • String Quartet in E flat Op. 33 No. 2 'The Joke'
  • Franz Schubert (1797-1828)
        • String Quartet in A minor D804 'Rosamunde'
