Savour this classical chamber program full of wit and charm featuring music by Haydn and his contemporaries.

Our award-winning recordings of Haydn symphonies have been admired the world over for their verve and panache. On a more intimate scale, we now return to the music of Haydn and his contemporaries. Elisa Citterio has curated a program of classical chamber music, with trios by Haydn and Bréval and a lively quintet by Boccherini. The bassoon makes an appearance in Danzi’s quartet in D Minor as an equal partner in a musical conversation among four instruments.

In striking contrast to the emotional expressiveness of baroque music, these intimate works full of wit and charm favour the clarity and poise of classicism.
