The final concert of the Jubilee String Quartet’s series begins with Haydn’s last string quartet. It was written at the end of his life when the ageing composer, his energies flagging, was able to complete only two movements.

This is followed by two works by Schubert. First comes an early quartet, written for the family ensemble in which the boy Schubert played the viola, alongside his father and two brothers.

It is followed by his last towering quartet, a powerful and substantial piece written in a mere ten days despite the composer’s weakening health.
