Led by Alina Ibragimova, the Chiaroscuro Quartet is revered as one of Europe’s leading period instrument ensembles today. For this afternoon’s performance as part of their two year partnership as Turner Sims Associate Artists, they are joined by clarinettist Matthew Hunt for a performance of one of Mozart’s timeless masterpieces. The first work ever to be written for clarinet and string quartet it was composed for the virtuoso Antonio Stadler who was also the dedicatee of Mozart’s popular clarinet concerto. Haydn’s work, from his Op 33 set of quartets described by the composer as written ‘in a new and special way’, earned its nickname from the rhythm heard in the first movement. Beethoven’s serene quartet, composed in the same year as his mighty Emperor piano concerto, concludes with a set of variations, the only one of his string quartets to do so.
