Cuarteto Casals opens its programme with the extreme contrasts of Mozart’s Adagio and Fugue in C minor, a work that has lost none of its power to trigger vivid emotions.

The acclaimed Spanish musicians, regular guests at Wigmore Hall, also examine the intense expression of Haydn’s Op. 20 No. 5 and the restrained beauty of Beethoven’s ‘Harp’ Quartet, perhaps written as a memorial work following Haydn’s death in 1809.

  • Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart (1756-1791)
