Traditional tunes and uncommon forms from around the world.

Megan Wittig, soprano & Musaeus String Quartet

Last Leaf, by the Danish String Quartet, is based on traditional Nordic tunes, from more refined waltzes and minuets to the wilder fare of polkas and reels, arranged for string quartet. Musaeus brings to the stage a selection of these myriad dance tunes.

Dedicated to a Hungarian count, the “Emperor” string quartet is one of Haydn’s most ambitious works. A colleague of Haydn’s noted the work is “full of invention, fire, good taste, and new effects”. Fasten your seatbelt in preparation for a composition filled with uncommon forms and tempos.

Special guest Megan Wittig sings songs inspired by chivalry and courtly love, with a slight touch of irreverent humour. Passed down through the ages, these songs can be based on passion, poetry – or politics, the jokes understood by medieval audiences “in the know”.
