Haydn’s ‘Sun Quartets’, named after the rising sun decoration printed on the cover of their first edition in 1772, underlined the composer’s status as a master of the genre.
As part of Wigmore Hall’s Haydn String Quartet Series, the Doric String Quartet unlocks the full ‘Storm and Stress’ energy and impassioned intensity of Op. 20 Nos. 4–6.
