Hear Haydn whole in 24 hours

Norway’s Vertavo Quartet has a 35th anniversary coming up.

How to celebrate?

Take the complete works of Joseph Haydn. father of the string quartet, and play them end to end (with some help from a few other musicians) over an autumnal weekend, October 26-27.

Then stream it live@absolutthaydn.

  • The Edinburgh Festival went through a phase when it felt the necessity to present ‘complete cycles’. My personal feeling was that it turned concerts into an endurance test which did little to service the music.

  • Norman, you mean the complete string quartets rather than the complete works of Haydn, right? Somehow, I don’t picture the Vertavo Quartet doing the Harmoniemesse,/i> or Il mondo della luna.
