Chiaroscuro Quartet | Associate Artists
SUNDAY 04 JUNE - 7:30 PM
Purcell Fantasias Nos 7 (Z 738), 8 (Z 739) and 11 (Z 742)
Haydn Quartet in D, Op 33 No 6
Beethoven Quartet No 11 in F minor, Op 95 Serioso
Our Associate Artists begin their latest concert with three of the 15 fantasias that the 21 year old Purcell composed in a two-week period in 1680.
Originally written for viols, the works have become favourites for string quartets. Beethoven’s quartet, the last from his so-called ‘middle period’ is one of the shortest of the 16 he wrote. The composer dedicated to his close friend, Nikolaus Zmeskall von Domanovetz, and declared that it was intended for a small circle of connoisseurs, never to be publicly performed.
