Haydn Unpicked

France’s acclaimed Modigliani Quartet take you behind the stage curtain, offering a rare glimpse into the rehearsal process—a fly–on–the–wall view of the artistry behind turning a never–before–seen piece of sheet music into a full recital.

Haydn Unpicked sees the Modigliani Quartet take a Haydn piece from first glance to first performance, before your very eyes. One of the breakout successes of Haydn for Everyone, Haydn Unpicked is part public rehearsal and part armchair masterclass—a fascinating opportunity to witness the awe–inspiring craft of professional musicianship up close and personal.
