Hayden's Op. 20 quartets mark a monumental stage in the creation of the string quartet genre with the achievement of the four voices as equals. Mozart's "Hunt" quartet is one of the set of six that he dedicated to Haydn - the composer that he held in highest esteem. Influenced by visual art, literature, and the 1889 Paris Exposition, Debussy brings a kaleidoscope of new colors to the string quartet palette of sounds.
Concerts 2 p.m. and 7:30 p.m.
