Haydn Project, part 3

This past Sunday, October 17, we resumed the Haydn Project - reading all 68 quartets in chronological order - after a long summer hiatus. Swang had his new violin with him - very exciting!

On the menu - after dinner* - were the 6 quartets in the op. 9 series, written ca. 1769/70 after a ten year break from the op. 1 and op. 2 quartets:
  • Quartet No. 11 in D minor, Op. 9, No. 4, FHE No. 16, Hoboken No. III:22
  • Quartet No. 12 in C major, Op. 9, No. 1, FHE No. 7, Hoboken No. III:19
  • Quartet No. 13 in G major, Op. 9, No. 3, FHE No. 9, Hoboken No. III:21
  • Quartet No. 14 in E♭ major, Op. 9, No. 2, FHE No. 8, Hoboken No. III:20
  • Quartet No. 15 in B♭ major, Op. 9, No. 5, FHE No. 17, Hoboken No. III:23
  • Quartet No. 16 in A major, Op. 9, No. 6, FHE No. 18, Hoboken No. III:24
Some of the standout moments were: the Adagio in No. 2, the Largo cantabile in No. 5, and the brooding d-minor quartet No. 4.

We finished after midnight, still willing to tackle a Mozart viola quintet, but relenting in the interest of good neighborly relations.
