The Hausmann Quartet Presents Frog and Hair
Mischief and wry humor abound in 2019’s final concert, featuring quirky miniatures by Andrew Norman (Peculiar Strokes) and Igor Stravinsky (Concertino) to go along with two of Haydn’s most creative and unique contributions to the string quartet repertoire, his so-called “Frog” and “Lark” Quartets. Come enjoy some clever musical jokes, winks and nods to go along with the beautiful sunset aboard the Berkeley as the fourth season of Haydn Voyages comes to a close.
Haydn Voyages: Music at the Maritime Museum of San Diego is a quarterly concert series aboard Berkeley – an 1898 steam ferryboat that operated for 60 years on San Francisco Bay.
Concerts aboard this National Historic Landmark explore the evolution of the string quartet through the lens of Joseph Haydn’s quartet cycle. The programming sets his works alongside those of master composers from our own era and stretching back to his musical ancestors. As the father of the string quartet and one of history’s most innovative composers, Haydn is an ideal guide to this exploration of some of the most powerful, creative music ever written.
Each creative program will also include informative and entertaining commentary during the performance from noted UC Santa Barbara musicologist Derek Katz.
