Formed in 2012 at the Royal College of Music, the Consone Quartet is the first period-instrument quartet to be selected as BBC New Generation Artists. All three of tonight's works span a great musical shift. Haydn's lyrical Op. 71 No. 2 looks forward to Romanticism, while Beethoven's String Quartet No. 5 looks back to Classical Mozart. The Austrian Carl Czerny wrote a huge amount of music which bridged the late Classical and early Romantic eras. Many of his works - like tonight's String Quartet in D Minor - are still being re-discovered.
