Old World Masters

The First Christian Church of Kent - 11717 SE 240th, Kent

Dvorak, String Quartet in F Major
Haydn, String Quartet in D Major
Mozart, String Quartet in B Flat Major

Also known as “The American Quartet”, Dvorak’s String Quartet in F Major was written when the composer was in the United States in the early 1890’s. Haydn’s String Quartet in D Major is primarily referred to as The Lark because of the violin’s high bird-like melody at the very beginning. And Mozart’s String Quartet in B Flat Major is known as The Hunt because the music in the first movement was said to evoke the sound and the mood of the chase. This is our first chamber concert in Kent, sponsored in part by the City of Kent Arts Commission and the Garneau-Nicon Foundation.
