Course Description

Two violins, one viola, and one cello: this combination has motivated composers for over two centuries to produce some of their most strikingly intimate pieces. Accompanied by live violin demonstrations, this course will trace the history of the string quartet, exploring how the genre became a cultural melting pot, crossing paths with philosophy and literature. The project will feature music by Schubert, Hensel Mendelssohn, Ravel, Bartók, Shostakovich and Adès, as well as the cornerstone works of Haydn, Mozart and Beethoven.
