The Heath Quartet’s seasonlong survey of Jörg Widmann’s five string quartets continues, placing the German composer’s ‘Jagdquartett’ in company with two works marked by their intense concentration and foreboding.

Widmann’s work echoes the opening rhythms of Beethoven’s Seventh Symphony before pursuing its ideas with obsessive energy and wanton violence.

  • Joseph Haydn (1732-1809)
        • String Quartet in D minor Op. 76 No. 2 'Fifths'
