Schubert String Quartet in G, D887

Haydn’s six string quartets Op.20 composed in 1772 are regarded as masterpieces of the genre. The concert includes a selection of ‘Les Vendredis’: string quartet pieces by Russian composers such as Rimsky-Korsakov, Liadov and Borodin that were performed at Friday evening concerts at the home of the music publisher Mitrofan Belyayev. Schubert’s profound masterpiece, the final string quartet composed in ten days in 1826 completes the programme.
