Haydn and Mozart Quartets
Mozart's six "Haydn" Quartets were dedicated and lovingly handed to Joseph Haydn, like a father entrusting his sons to a friend to protect and guide them. When Haydn first started composing for the string quartet, the first violinist was the star, actually standing in front of the other three players. Ninety-nine Haydn string quartets later, the form had evolved into four equal voices. Bill will share with us the brief time in history when Mozart and Haydn enjoyed each other’s company, playing and composing string quartets together. Playlist information at exploringmusic.wfmt.com.

A Little Night Music
As we approach the winter solstice, the nights grow longer and the moon becomes so bright that the sky seems to sparkle in its glow. Night sounds also become clear and close in the cold winter air. Composers love capturing these sounds and reflecting them in their music. This week, in an homagé to Jane Yolen’s Owl Moon, voices fade away into the musical dreams of a winter night.
