Haydn Voyages

Night Music

May 19, 2024 at 2:30pm  |  Maritime Museum of San Diego

Artists through the centuries have been drawn to the darkness and mystery of the night for inspiration, and this concert showcases two seminal works from this tradition. After a typically inventive Haydn quartet to open the program, a “May gray” San Diego afternoon on the water may set the scene for French composer Henri Dutilleux’s Ainsi La Nuit (Thus the Night), a 20th-century masterpiece. The second half of this show will feature Arnold Schoenberg’s lushly impressionistic Verklärte Nacht (Transfigured Night) for string sextet, with local stars Travis Maril (viola) and Elizabeth Brown (cello) joining the Hausmann Quartet.


Joseph Haydn – Quartet No. 19 in C Minor, Op. 17, No. 4 (1771)
