In this lecture, composer, radio personality and CMS Resident Lecturer Bruce Adolphe is joined by CMS artists to examine Haydn's Quartet in C major for Strings, Hob. III: 57, Op. 54, No. 2. Always surprising, witty, and daring, Haydn is in top form in this remarkably virtuosic quartet. Adolphe offers a detailed study of the comic effects and compositional thinking of the Father of the String Quartet.
