Quartet SalonniereThis program explores the development of the string quartet by surveying the way composers from different national backgrounds conceptualized the genre: Franz Joseph Haydn from Vienna’s dominating taste for string quartets, Maddalena Sirmen from the Venice Ospedale’s education system, and Joseph Boulogne from an upper-class Parisian milieu.

Aniela Eddy, violin/viola
Natalie Kress, violin/viola
Cullen O’Neil, cello

Devotion to performance practices of the 18th and 19th centuries brings the spirit of Quartet Salonnières’ education, creativity and inclusivity to audiences world-wide.
