JOSEPH HAYDN: Quartet No. 2 in F major

LUDWIG VAN BEETHOVEN: Quartet No. 2 in E minor, "Razumovsky"

Since its founding in 1946, the ever-evolving institution that is Juilliard String Quartet has become a living American legend. From the beginning, the group has been recognized for bold interpretations of classics, with an equal and parallel tradition of championing new works. With its history of incomparable artistry and enduring vigor, the group continues to be “the standard by which all other quartets must be judged” (The New York Times).  

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
A Note from Joseph "Yossi" Kalichstein, Artistic Director of Fortas
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
If one were to give a quick overview of the String Quartet as a medium, three names surely stand out: that of Haydn, its virtual inventor; that of Beethoven, its virtual Bible; and that of Bartók, whose six quartets are as central to the history and importance of this medium as Beethoven’s. Juilliard String Quartet is making a most welcomed return to Washington with a program representing the best of these three masters.
