Widely considered to be the greatest exponents of Haydn’s work in the world today, the London Haydn Quartet has spent more than a decade reinvigorating the composer’s reputation and sound, bringing his peerless music to new audiences around the globe. With their gut–bowed period instruments and dazzling interpretations of familiar classics, they play the master’s opuses as they were meant to be played: full of color, texture, and verve, soaring with virtuosity and unexpected thrills. The LHQ’s Philadelphia/PCMS debut pairs them with historical clarinetist Eric Hoeprich for a performance of Mozart’s magnificent Clarinet Quintet.

Haydn: Quartet in F Major, Op. 17, No. 2, Hob. III:28
Haydn: Quartet in D Major, Op. 20, No. 4, Hob. III:34
Mozart: Clarinet Quintet in A Major, K. 581

This performance features a free pre-concert lecture starting at 6:45 PM with Steven Kreinberg.
