The London Haydn Quartet play with such deep feeling, dynamic subtlety and phrasal sensitivity that even the simplest ideas become things of wonder.
The players here are alive to the music's spontaneity, and to the way Haydn crafts such a fertile mix of melody and texture.

The world–renowned London Haydn Quartet makes its long–awaited Melbourne debut.
Widely considered to be the greatest exponents of Haydn’s work in the world today, the London Haydn Quartet has spent more than a decade reinvigorating the composer’s reputation and sound, bringing his peerless music to new audiences around the globe.
With their gut–bowed period instruments and dazzling interpretations of familiar classics, they play the master’s opuses as they were meant to be played: full of colour, texture and verve, soaring with virtuosity and unexpected thrills.
In a remarkable program selected from across Haydn’s lifetime, this concert event demonstrates the scintillating potential of the string quartet in full flight—pure, sublime and utterly enthralling.
