The Eybler Quartet

SPECIAL EVENT – Friends of Chamber Music and Early Music Vancouver present
Original Instruments String Quartets at Christ Church Cathedral.

 

Private to Public Journey of the String Quartet 

Music for 2 violins, viola and ‘cello emerged in the mid-18th Century as popular home entertainment. What we now recognize as the string quartet spent most of its early years in the drawing room, and only in the 19th Century did established groups begin presenting regular public concerts.

The period instrument Eybler Quartet (members of Toronto’s Tafelmusik) traces a line from the obscure early roots to the treasured works of Haydn and Beethoven that became the backbone of the string quartet repertoire. 

 

PROGRAM:

Johann Baptist Vanhal - String Quartet op. 6 #3 in C major
Franz Asplmayr - String Quartet op. 2 #2 in D major
Joseph Haydn - String Quartet op. 33 #1 in B minor
Ludwig van Beethoven - String Quartet op. 18 #3 in D major
