Haydn – String Quartet in B flat Op.55 No.3
Bartók – String Quartet No.6 Sz.114
Dvorak - Piano Quintet in A Op. 81
With Hok Kiu Johnson Leung - Cambridge University Student (Guest Pianist)
The last of Haydn's three Op.55 quartets opens this concert, which continues with the last of Bartók's quartets. In this late period of exile in the USA, Bartók reverts to a more immediately accessible and expressive style which is startlingly communicative and strong. The ever-popular performance of a quintet with one of the many extremely talented Cambridge University students will feature Hok Kiu Johnson Yeung, an engineering student!

Mozart – String Quintet in B flat K.174
Beethoven – String Quartet in F Op.135
Mozart – String Quintet in E flat K.614
With David Adams (Guest Violist)
The first and the last of Mozart’s great cycle of viola quintets sandwich Beethoven’s last great quartet. This has one of the most beloved slow movements of his whole output. The rest of the work has often been said to branch out into what may have become a new departure in Beethoven’s music had he not died soon afterwards. It has almost a Haydn-esque spirit of wit and good nature although paradoxically taken to the extremes which characterise Beethoven’s last works.
