The NOVO Quartet Play Haydn and Beethoven

/ 14. August 2022
12:00 PM - 1:00 PM

Hear the rising stars of the NOVO Quartet playing Beethoven and Haydn in this witty concert.

In 1792, the young Beethoven headed to Vienna to study with Haydn. The NOVO Quartet celebrates this meeting with a performance of Haydn’s jolly Op. 33, No. 2 – nicknamed ‘The Joke Quartet’ because of its quirky final movement: a dancing Rondo, which rounds off with hesitant pauses and potential endings, finally concluding with a teasing musical whisper.

Beethoven’s Op. 59, No. 2 begins with similar restless pauses, before erupting into a dramatic showdown between light and darkness. In the rustic third movement, Beethoven incorporates a famous Russian theme that was given to him by Razumovsky.
