Chilingirian Quartet 1

Details

Haydn String Quartet in G major, Op.77 No.1 22'
Beethoven String Quartet in C minor, Op.18 No.4 23½'
Beamish String Quartet No.2 'Opus California' 11¼'
Elgar String Quartet in E minor, Op.83 27½'

After Carole's recital last night, more Haydn and Beethoven connections: Prince Joseph Franz Maximilian Lobkowitz commissioned both the Op.77 set from Haydn – which proved to be his last, incomplete, set – and Beethoven's first set of quartets, his Op.18, and both were written in 1799-1800. Op.18 No.4 is also the inspiration for Sally Beamish's 1999 quartet, which uses four themes from the first movement of the Beethoven as the basis for the four short movements, combining the classical influences with a West Coast sensibility. The second of Elgar's great E minor works from 1918 (see also the Violin Sonata tomorrow morning) captures the spirit of the woods surrounding his new home at Brinkwells.
