Come hear why Mozart, Beethoven, and Brahms looked to Haydn’s deeply expressive, sophisticated and witty masterpieces for inspiration when the Haymarket String Quartet presents the complete cycle of six quartets on period instruments for the first time in Chicago.

Haydn’s six string quartets Opus 20 were pivotal in the history and development of the string quartet. In these thrilling masterpieces, the 40-year-old Haydn shook up the status quo first violin-dominant texture by spreading melodic and contrapuntal interest among the four instruments. This ground-breaking egalitarian style set a new standard in the string quartet genre.
