Schubert String Quartet No. 1
Sirmen String Quartet No. 5 in F minor
Haydn String Quartet in B flat major, ‘Sunrise’
Praised for their suppleness of sound, BBC Radio 3 New Generation Artists the Aris Quartet makes its Proms debut with Haydn’s ebullient ‘Sunrise’ Quartet – nicknamed for the beautiful climbing phrase with which it opens. This late, great work is paired with two youthful pieces: Schubert’s quietly innovative String Quartet No. 1, and the String Quartet No. 5 by Maddalena Laura Sirmen (born Lombardini) – the 18th-century violin virtuoso and pupil of Tartini, whose career was a defiant exception in a male-dominated profession.
