Program

Mozart, String Quartet No. 14 in G Major (K387) (1782)
Peter Eötvös, Korrespondenz (1992)
Beethoven, String Quartet No 12 in E flat, Op. 127 (1825)

En route to a European tour, the great American string quartet Calder Quartet comes to the Gardner Museum. The group has performed to sold out classical music audiences all over the world, as well as collaborating with groups like Vampire Weekend and The National.  

Their Gardner program opens with the first of Mozart’s six quartets dedicated to Haydn, a dazzling work whose finale wittily combines fugue and sonata form in a way that prefigures the great Jupiter Symphony that would come six years later.  

Hungarian composer Peter Eötvös has written a musical “scene”—complete with stage directions—depicting Mozart’s relationship with his father through their correspondence. 

The first of Beethoven’s open-hearted late quartets anchors the second half of the program.
