The Saint Lawrence String Quartet Unpacks Haydn

Although Haydn wrote 68 string quartets and is the father of the form, the Saint Lawrence String Quartet, based at Stanford University where they run the chamber music program, believes he doesn't get the recognition he deserves. 

"As great as Haydn was and as great as his music is, we've found that audiences don't necessarily appreciate him enough," explains cellist Christopher Costanza.

The Saint Lawrence String Quartet performs from their innovative Haydn Discovery repertoire as well as a Beethoven and the Menselssohn Octet this Thursdayat the Faulkner Performing Arts Center on  the UA Fayetteville campus.
