Australian Haydn Quartet to Perform at Library on Sunday

Wilton Library has just added this Sunday afternoon concert to the January line-up of events. Registration is suggested.

The Australian Haydn Quartet will perform at Wilton Library on Sunday, Jan. 19 from 4:00 – 5:00 p.m. 

The quartet is a period instrument group specializing in chamber music and string orchestral music of the classical era.  

They will present a program of classical string quartet pieces played in period style - meaning on original instruments in the style intended by the composers. At the heart of The Australian Haydn Ensemble is a core of remarkably talented, enthusiastic, and dynamic permanent members, each of whom is a specialist in historical performance practice. 

Their collaboration of highly experienced artists results in a powerful strength of tone, a delicacy of execution and breaths vitality into works of the Classical and early Romantic Period. They aim to present creative programs, re-igniting the personalities and life philosophies of the composers that existed behind the music both known and unknown in a 21st-century context. 

The Ensemble brings together a wealth of expertise of first class Period and Modern ensembles and orchestras from all over the world.  No charge.  Registration strongly suggested.  

Pre-registrants should arrive by 3:50p.m. to be guaranteed seating. Wait-listed and walk-in registrants will be admitted after 3:50 if space is available. 

Wilton Library, 137 Old Ridgefield Road,Wilton; www.wiltonlibrary.org; (203) 762-3950.
