Mozart’s Oboe & The Hunt at Newcastle Conservatorium of Music
‘La Chasse’ or ‘The Hunt’ was a popular theme of the 18th century. This intimate chamber music program intertwines quartets based on this fascination with music for the oboe - an instrument then often associated with hunt.
Haydn’s string quartet ‘La Chasse’ Op. 1 No. 1 was written as early as 1751. Its stunning adagio is a vision of where Haydn would go with this genre.
Mozart’s Quartet K. 370, also nicknamed ‘The Hunt’, written some thirty years later, is the fourth quartet in a set of six he dedicated to the great master, Papa Haydn.
This program also features a beautiful and rarely heard oboe quartet by the German composer Janitsch, who spent much of his life in Berlin. His prolific output, of both chamber and larger symphonic works, is largely forgotten today.
