“One of the best concerts of the year!” ClassikON, 2018
Experience the essence of eighteenth century France in this chamber music program of Devienne, Rameau, Jadin, Mozart and Haydn.
Mozart’s charismatic Flute Quartet in A major opens this feast of music - its final movement containing a French style Rondo highlighting Mozart’s comical reputation. AHE also performs Jadin’s delightful and playful String Quartet Op. 3 No. 1, dedicated to Haydn. The turbulent mood continues with Haydn’s Symphony No. 87 in a new string quartet arrangement by Vi King Lim and the program closes with Rameau’s Cinquième Concert from Pièces de clavecin en concerts, paying homage to earlier composers Forqueray and Marais.
