Haydn Voyages: Worldly Travelers
September 20, 2020 at 4 p.m. | Virtual Concert Hall

Join the Hausmann Quartet on a wonderfully varied journey around the world from the comfort of your own home as we stream this concert from their usual location on the Berkeley. This virtual voyage includes stops in this century’s Middle East and 18th-century France, and of course Haydn’s Austria. The program opens with a quartet by the inventive Chevalier de Saint-Georges (remembered as the first classical composer of African descent) who collaborated on many of Haydn’s Paris premieres. Young Iranian composer Aftab Darvishi’s evocative Daughters of Sol is the bridge to one of Haydn’s late masterpieces, opus 76, no. 6.

Come take a (virtual) trip around the world!

Musical selections:
J.B. St.-Georges – Quartet Concertant in B-flat Major (1777)
Aftab Darvishi – Daughters of Sol (2017)
Haydn – Quartet no. 65, op 76/6 in E-flat Major (1797)

The link to the concert stream will be provided after registering through the usual ticketleap link.
