"In the River" is the theme of this season's chamber music matinees. Our musicians around Antonia Siegers have thought of a composer for whom "everything was in flux" – Joseph Haydn. His personal development unfolds before us in the music, and with it his refinement, his ravishing inner joy and serenity. The grand master of classical music – and especially of the string quartet - was not one who had to wrestle with himself, not one who was lost between genius and madness. His Opus 9 was a milestone, which he himself also regarded as the first valid quartet. It is framed by one of his best-known quartets, Op. 76 No. 1, and a surprisingly unknown work whose discovery is more than worthwhile.
