A History of the Quartet in 30 minutes


Why is the string quartet the most important genre in the realm of chamber music? How did this genre come about? How did the history of the quartet evolve? In thirty minutes, the musicologist Miguel Ángel Marín suggests answers to these questions, outlining the astonishing birth of the genre during the 1760s, the characteristics of early quartets and some of the most important quartet composers and musicians. This session marks the beginning of the series The History of the Quartet in Seven Concerts, which will run from October 2017 until June 2018, tracing the history of this genre.
