PROGRAM NOTES
Quartet in D major, Op. 76, No. 5.......Haydn
"Papa" Haydn, greatest of all string quartet masters, proves again in this work his genius for clarity, melodic line, and perfect interbalance of four voices. He composed eighty-three quartets.
Quartet in D-flat major, No. 2.......Dohnanyi
This brilliant Hungarian composer-pianist is credited with several chamber music works of which the present quartet is considered as outstanding. It is internationally popular and exhibits the true romantic gypsy spirit.
Quartet in F minor, Op. 95 ("Quartetto Serioso") . Beethoven
The so-called "serious quartet," is actually a forerunner of the six generally referred to as "the late quartets" of Beethoven. It was written during a troubled time in the composer's life and clearly reflects his deep meditation.
