Haydn once said, “Before God, and as an honest man, I tell you that [Mozart] is the greatest composer known to me either in person or by name. He has taste, and, what is more, the most profound knowledge of composition.” This program celebrates Mozart’s admiration for Haydn. After studying Haydn’s Op. 33 Quartets, Mozart wrote the “Dissonance.”

The Passeri Quartet was formed in 2020 through Juilliard’s Historical Performance program. Its members have participated in American Bach Soloists, Boston Early Music Festival, Midtown Concerts, Juilliard String Quartet Seminar, Kneisel Hall, La Risonanza Early Music Academy, Oregon Bach Festival, and Trigonale Early Music Course. The musicians share an interest in expanding the string quartet repertoire on period instruments to include music from the Renaissance to the 21st century.
