Haydn and Mozart: The Instrumental Masterpieces


  • Gleacher Center North Cityfront Plaza Drive Chicago, IL, 60611 United States

Haydn was the father of the symphony and the string quartet; his innovations in these genres have persisted for 150 years and are responsible for the evolution of classical music right through the 20th Century. Mozart’s greatest instrumental genres are the piano concerto and the string quintet; this course will examine masterpieces of both composers in these genres and will consider their vital contributions to centuries of music.
