Haydn and Schubert feature once again in this, the last of the Jubilee Quartet’s three concerts, this time with music by Mendelssohn. Haydn’s string quartet in F minor comes from his set op.20, in which, after earlier experiments, he reaches maturity and displays his complete mastery of the quartet form.

The Schubert quartet is a youthful work, written when the composer was a boy of just 16, and intended for performance within the family circle. Mendelssohn’s quartet in A minor is also an early work, written when he was 18. It is a dramatic piece, full of a young man’s energy and passion.
