With such epithets as ‘Father of the Symphony’ and ‘Father of the String Quartet,’ the position of Haydn in the history of music is assured. This festival focuses on his Op. 20 string quartets (1772) – a milestone in the genre, with their use of four independent parts and those from his final completed set, Op. 76 (1797/8); but the composer’s scarcely less crucial centrality to the development of the Piano Trio and Piano Sonata is also amply reflected.
