The "fearless, flexible, and fiery" (The Philadelphia Inquirer) Dryden String Quartet distinguishes itself by combining its members' remarkably accomplished and varied musical lives into a unified and vibrant ensemble. With performances wherein "time seemed to stand still…the audience held its collective breath" (The Washington Post), the Dryden delivers "the most thrilling quartet playing…heard in years" (The Philadelphia Inquirer). Don't miss this program that begins with Mozart's extraordinary String Quartet in G major, one of his six famous string quartets dedicated to his contemporary Franz Josef Haydn…continues with Janácek's "Intimate Letters," his intensely personal and emotional statement of unrequited love…and concludes with Beethoven's deeply moving String Quartet in C-sharp minor, considered by many the composer's defining quartet.
