String Quartet - Joseph Haydn, Op. 76 No. 1 in G major

A free lecture and a full performance of this Haydn quartet.

Haydn's Op. 76, the last set of six quartets he composed, are generally recognised as the pinnacle of his writing in the genre. They were completed in 1796-7 and published a couple of years later. No. 1 in G major, as befits the opening quartet of the set, is grandiose and symphonic in breadth and construction, with some impressive "orchestral" writing for the quartet, and with a broad tonal canvas including frequent explorations of the parallel minor mode.
