About This Performance

Having just celebrated its 70th anniversary, the ever-evolving Juilliard Quartet has become a living legend. Widely considered the quintessential American string quartet, the Juilliard has been recognized for the boldness of its interpretation of the classics, with an equal and parallel tradition of championing the new—a vibrant combination of the familiar and the daring. The quartet’s sound is famously characterized by clarity of structure, compelling rhythmic drive, and an extraordinary unanimity of purpose no matter the work at hand.

Haydn: Quartet in D Major, Op. 76, No. 5
