Neilson Hays Library in collaboration with the Bangkok Symphony Orchestra Foundation presents a chamber music program “From Haydn to Dvořák” at the Neilson Hays Library on Sunday, August 22nd.

The String Quartet is made up of four vibrant, young promising BSO members who are the new generation of Thailand’s classical music scene.

The evening Programmes consist of two popular standard string quartet works with contrasting styles: The first is Haydn’s String Quartet in G major, Op 76, No. 1 (Hob III:75), the first of a set of 6 string quartets he last composed as a complete set. The Op. 76 quartets are Haydn's most ambitious yet, moving away from standard sonata form to a more flexible structure allowing for seamless exchange of motifs between instruments.

Dvořák’s String Quartet No. 12 in F Major, Op. 96, is nicknamed “American Quartet", written in 1893, during Dvořák’s time in the United States. He was spending his vacation in the town of Spillville, Iowa, home to a Czech immigrant community. Through the usage of pentatonic scale, Dvořák managed to successfully find a balance between his overflowing melodic invention and a clear structure. The quartet was composed shortly after he completed other famous work, the New World Symphony.
