Haydn: Quartet in A Major, Op. 20, No. 6

Bartok: Quartet No. 4

Dvorak: Piano Quintet in A Major, Op.81 with Sofya Gulyak, piano

The ASQ closes out their 2016-17 St. Louis series with a gathering of masterpieces by three of the giants of the chamber music repertoire.  The evening begins with Franz Joseph Haydn, the father of the string quartet, in his groundbreaking Quartet in A Major, Op.20 No.6, a work in which style and idea combine with clarity of expression to create one of the cornerstone works of string quartet writing.   The ASQ follows with Bela Bartok’s scintillating Quartet No.4, a work inspired by Hungarian folk music and propelled by Bartok’s profound genius, and one of the true marvels in compositional and expressive achievement of the 20th century.  In their finale to the season, the Arianna Quartet welcomes acclaimed Russian pianist Sofya Gulyak to the Touhill for a performance of Antonin Dvorak’s ever-popular Piano Quintet, Op.81, a work of expansive beauty and poetic lyricism; the perfect way to close out another memorable season of concerts with the ASQ at the Touhill Performing Arts Center.

This performance features a pre-show talk with the Arianna String Quartet. Please arrive 50 minutes early for the pre-show discussion.
