The 2022 appearance of the Zoffany Ensemble at Conway Hall featured “pen-hearted and engaging playing… heady drama in the finale…”, and “the high-spirited finish had the audience cheering.” (The Strad) They return with a programme of string quintets, opening with Michael Haydn, younger brother of Josef, whose first quintets pre-date those by Mozart.
Beethoven’s only string quintet, composed during his ‘middle period’ (around the time he was writing the C minor piano concerto and the second symphony) is followed by Mozart’s great G minor essay in the genre to complete an exciting programme.
