Museum ticket


Haydn, during his long career, has brought the quartet genre to a very high degree of writing perfection. In 1799, when Haydn composes the Quartets Op. 77, the history of music is witnessing a particularly important moment: Haydn, now elderly, is passing his baton to a young Beethoven, who in those years is composing a new cycle of string quartets full of references to Haydn’s music. At Trame Sonore the Quartetto Leonardo will perform, for the Ars Perfecta plot, the Quartet n. 1 in G major.
