Sydney Mozart Society: Australian Haydn Ensemble


Entering its 10th year as a recognised Australian period instrument ensemble of excellence, the Australian Haydn Ensemble performs sparkling chamber works from the years of Mozart’s rise to stardom in Vienna.  This concert lets you ‘eavesdrop’ on a 1782 stellar string quartet featuring Haydn on violin and a young Mozart on viola as the music they sightread - Haydn’s brilliant How Do You Do? quartet and the fifth of Boccherini’s Opus 32  - is created anew.  

Boccherini’s piece displays the vibrant colours we have come to love, including a virtuosic violin capriccio in the finale.  Haydn’s lesson in the form he pioneered, encapsulates the clever, funny, and beautiful nature that won the heart of Vienna’s star ascendant.

The centrepiece is Mozart’s amazing Dissonance quartet, with its startlingly original adagio opening, written in honour of his new mentor.
