Event Details

AHE opens its 2019 season in Berry with a string quartet program that celebrates Haydn’s love of the natural world.

In our first program, Artistic Director and violinist Skye McIntosh and the AHE quartet explore the relationship between Haydn and nature. Two of Haydn’s beloved string quartets, Sunrise and The Bird bookend the program. In The Lark, Haydn masterfully weaves the birdsong-like melodies of the first violins that fly above the other instruments. The work finishes with a fiendishly difficult moto perpetuo.

At the heart of the program are selections from one of Haydn’s famous oratorios, The Creation.
The Ensemble presents movements from both in historical string quartet arrangements.
One of Haydn’s indisputable works of genius, the String Quartet Op. 76 No. 4 (Sunrise) closes the program. Although it was not nicknamed by Haydn himself, the opening bars of the quartet clearly evoke the image of daybreak.
