Chaos String Quartet
Half day ticket 14-18 h incl. Workshop with Oliver Wille at 2 pm.
In addition to early works by Mozart and a look at a more recent time period with György Kurtág, the afternoon with Chaos String Quartet concludes with the "Hoffmeister Quartet": it got its name from its unusual publication history. While quartets were usually published in cycles at the time, publisher Anton Hoffmeister saw an opportunity to break new ground due to Mozart's growing popularity and publish his quartet together with – how could it be otherwise – a quartet by Joseph Haydn. Mozart's work captivates with its pastose overall sound, in which all four instruments create the melody equally, which was a novelty for the time.
Concert with intermission
