Goethe once wrote, “When I listen to a string quartet, it makes me feel as if I am eavesdropping on a conversation between four intelligent people.” This week we are going to listen to string quartets composed over a period of about two and a half centuries. From Joseph Haydn, the father of the string quartet, all the way to Aaron Jay Kernis, a Pulitzer prize-winning present-day composer.
