Haydn for Everyone

Melbourne Festival’s magnificent three–year retrospective of Haydn’s quartets comes to a triumphant close.

In 2013, Melbourne Festival embarked on a remarkable mission: a quest to perform and celebrate all 68 of the quartets composed by Franz Joseph Haydn—the man who invented the string quartet and had an unmistakable impact on the evolution of contemporary music.

The Festival is proud to present the stunning conclusion to the much celebrated Haydn for Everyone program—and to finish things off with the most ambitious and wide–ranging series yet.
