The Jubilee Quartet’s second concert begins with music by Haydn, the first of his two string quartets op.77. These were the last quartets that Haydn completed, as he neared the end of his life, and this G major quartet is a fine work, noted for its solemn and majestic slow movement.

Schubert’s Quartettsatz is one of his several unfinished compositions. The concert closes with one of Beethoven’s late quartets. Written after the composer had recovered from a period of illness, it is an intense and inward-looking work whose meditative slow movement is entitled ‘a hymn of thanksgiving from a convalescent to the Almighty’.
