    The world of music was not immune from the enormous social and political upheavals of the 18th century: ‘The Century Lights’. This year’s Baroque Day highlights the changes in style and taste that marked the transition from the late Baroque to Classical period and the rise of the string quartet and the symphony
    Telemann Quartet in G, TWV 43: G5
    Richter Quartet no. 1 op. 5
    Mozart Excerpts from  Die Zauberflöte, K 620
    Haydn Quartet no. 2 op. 20

    Compagnia d’Istrumenti explores the development and popularity of the string quartet, from its genesis in the Baroque period to fashionable and popular 18th century adaptations of Mozart’s operatic arias and culminating in the music of ‘the admirable and matchless HAYDN!’ (Charles Burney)
