Mozart and Smetana

  • Michelangelo Quartet

Formed by four distinguished soloists and chamber musicians in 2002, the Michelangelo Quartet returns to Wigmore Hall to perform the sixth of Mozart's so-called 'Haydn' Quartets, with its daring, dissonant slow introduction, and Smetana's semi-autobiographical String Quartet No. 1. 'My intention', noted Smetana, 'was to paint a tone picture of my life'.

  • Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart (1756-1791)
        • String Quartet in C major K465 'Dissonance'
  • Bedřich Smetana (1824-1884)
        • String Quartet No. 1 in E minor 'From my life'
