The unusually dissonant introduction to Mozart’s Quartet K465, dedicated to Joseph Haydn, opens a colourful programme of works for string quartet, spanning almost 150 years. The centrepiece of the concert is Janáček’s 1923 work, inspired by Tolstoy’s novella The Kreutzer Sonata, while Brahms C minor quartet (possibly in this key to acknowledge as well as break free from Beethoven’s influence), over which Brahms agonised for many years and revised extensively, closes the evening.
