Henschel String Quartet

Christoph Henschel, violin Peter Clemente, violin Monika Henschel, viola Mathias Beyer-Karlshøj, cello, MOZART String Quartet in B flat K458 ‘Hunt’ WEBERN Six Bagatelles HAYDN String Quartet in E flat, Op.33/2 ‘Joke’ SCHUBERT String Quartet in D minor, D810 ‘Death and the Maiden’ Three works in this programme have earned titles subsequent to their composition. The spirited first movement theme in Mozart’s quartet is reminiscent of a hunting call. Haydn’s wit is evident in his Op.33/2 quartet which provides a surprise in the final movement. Schubert’s ‘Death and the Maiden’ quartet composed four years before his early death at the age of 31 is a sombre presentiment of mortality. Webern’s six miniatures for string quartet distil the quartet form to a brevity of crystalline beauty. The concert finishes at approximately 9.25pm 6.45 Pre-concert talk by Philip Weller
