Programme Note

The young composers' boundless joy of experimentation allows listeners to compare the incomparable. What are the unexpected sources of their inspiration? In Debussy's first and only string quartet, we discover sounds from the Far East, which he first heard at the Paris World Exhibition. In Mendelssohn's youthful work op. 12, we witness how a young man easily sheds the musically heavy legacy of Ludwig van Beethoven and creates a new dream world from compositional fragments of his late works. And the father of the string quartet, Joseph Haydn? Although he had only just developed the string quartet genre and consolidated it in several compositions, in his String Quartets op. 20 the young man was suddenly overcome by an irrepressible desire to break with all conventions and provocatively open his String Quartet in G minor with a theme that is only seven bars long. Outrageous!
