Haydn was the father of both the symphony and the string quartet, and his work in these genres profoundly shaped the evolution of classical music right through the twentieth century. Mozart, whose greatest instrumental genres were the piano concerto and the string quintet, exerted a comparable if not greater impact on music history. This course will examine masterpieces composed by both composers while considering their vital contributions to the development of each of these genres.
Six sessions. E - $220, L - $242
