Ah! Vienna – Mozart, Haydn and Stadler

Haydn String Quartet in E-flat, op. 64, no. 6
Stadler Caprice for solo clarinet
Mozart Clarinet Quintet in A major ('Stadler'), K. 581

This year we welcome back the award-winning Consone Quartet as guest artists for Baroque+ Day. The Consone Quartet are familiar to York audiences for their exhilarating performances of eighteenth- and nineteenth-century music, enriched by deep historical research into style and performance practice. This concert sees them collaborating with University of York historical-performance specialist Dr Emily Worthington in Mozart’s much-loved Clarinet Quintet, K. 581. Written in 1789 for his close friend, the brilliant clarinettist Anton Stadler, the Quintet uses Stadler’s newly invented ‘basset clarinet’ – an instrument that was only rediscovered in the twentieth century. The Quintet is paired with Haydn’s String Quartet in E-flat, op. 64, no. 6, written one year later in 1790 and dedicated to the Esterhazy violinist Johann Tost.

Baroque+ Day: Ah, Vienna!

Mozart wrote to his father in 1781 that Vienna was ‘the best place in the world’ to be a musician. This year’s Baroque+ Day takes a long view of musical life in the city in the seventeenth and eighteenth centuries, featuring historical performance staff and students from the University of York.
