January 10 concert features quartets of Haydn, Bartók, Dvorák
The Yale School of Music presents the Tokyo String Quartet in concert on Tuesday, January 10, 2012. The ensemble, now celebrating its thirty-fifth year in residence at the Yale School of Music, will perform quartets by Haydn, Bartók, and Dvorák. The concert begins at 8 pm in Morse Recital Hall.
Haydn’s String Quartet in G major, Op. 64, No. 4, will open the program. The Tokyo Quartet will then venture into music of Eastern Europe, beginning with the String Quartet No. 3 by Hungarian composer Bela Bartók. The concert will conclude with the String Quartet in G major, Op. 106, by Czech composer Antonín Dvorák.
The New York Times has praised the Tokyo String Quartet for nothing less than “exemplary chamber music,” and the Toronto Star has called it “an established ensemble playing as one living, breathing organism.”
