About the event

Welcome! Our Celebration opens with the clear and congenial tones of ‘Papa Haydn’, the revered father of the string quartet medium, then moves further east to Hungary and Bartók's impassioned first sonata for violin and piano. Written at the request of young violin virtuosa Jelly d’Aranyi with whom he was in love, it was premiered with Bartók himself at the piano. The concert finishes with the dramatic colours and rich harmonies of Bohemian Dvořák's second piano quartet, never before heard at our festival.
