All composed in the late 18th century, these quartets offer a dazzlingly display of virtuosity and charming solos.

Prussian Inspiration – String Quartets for King Wilhelm

King Friedrich Wilhelm II, an enthusiastic amateur cellist was the inspiration for these three works by the masters of the Classical string quartet, Haydn, Boccherini and Mozart. All composed in the late 18th century, these quartets offer a dazzlingly display of virtuosity and charming solos, notably for the cello part.

In 2016, Ironwood celebrates 10 years committed to exploring historically informed performance of repertoire from baroque, classical and romantic eras on period instruments. We are thrilled to present this special concert in Melbourne to celebrate musical friendships and 10 years of music making, exploring and sharing the music we love.
