Who was the dominant superstar of the early string quartet? Joseph Haydn!! Join the Eybler Quartet for an evening of infectiously engaging works revolving around him, including a piece by the master himself, one of the quartets Mozart dedicated to Haydn and a rarely heard works by his dear friend Johann Baptist Vanhal.
Copies of the Eybler Quartet’s latest CD, Vanhal, op. 6 nos. 1-6 will be available at the concert for the promotional price of $15/disc.
All proceeds from this concert will go to support the Heliconian Club of Toronto.
