"If only more quartet ensembles were so adventurous." The Strad

The second of Haydn's final set of string quartets, of which Dr Burney wrote "They seem the production not only of a sublime genius who has written so much and so well already, but one of highly cultivated talents who had expended none of his fire before", introduces a golden thread of Haydn in the 2017 LDSM programme. At the same time we mark the festival début of the highly-regarded Villiers Quartet (see also Wednesday). Arnold's great Victorian poem looks across the straits to France, where Delius wrote his enigmatic work – heard today in its 1916 version, only recently transcribed from the manuscript in the British Library.
