Haydn and Mozart
Naples Philharmonic Sypert Salon Chamber Music
Musicians of the Naples Philharmonic
Leonarda — Sonata No. 4, Op. 16
Haydn — String Quartet
Mozart — String Quintet in C Minor, K. 406
In this final Sypert Salon chamber performance of the 2022-23 season, musicians of the Naples Philharmonic present works by three prominent composers of the 17th and 18th centuries. The program begins with Sonata No. 4 by Italian composer Isabella Leonarda, one of the most prolific female composers of her time. Following the sonata are a pair of string works by master and pupil: one of Haydn’s string quartets and Mozart’s String Quintet in C Minor, originally written for a wind ensemble but later rearranged for strings.
