Postponed: Birth of the string quartet

This spring a quartet from the Orchestra of The Age of Enlightenment will be performing captivating pieces in this historic setting, in a special event organised by the Friends of Fulham Palace.

The concert will provide an evening of music featuring early gems of the string quartet genre including precocious works by the young Mozart and the “Father of string quartets” Joseph Haydn. Specialists in the music of the era of Bishop Sherlock, the musicians will share background and insight about the music of the time period and an explanation of the historical instruments on which they perform. Come and enjoy a unique opportunity to hear the renowned musicians of the Orchestra of the Age of Enlightenment in a setting where this 18th century repertoire was meant to be heard, and take the opportunity to meet the musicians at the end of their performance.
