Apollon Musagete Quartet

New Generation Artists, the Apollon Musagete Quartet, pay homage to Haydn in this series highlighting his legacy to future composers. Performing at the Perth Concert Hall, they present the D major Quartet from his later set, Op 71, alongside Beethoven's second 'Rasumovsky' Quartet in E minor, which shocked audiences and players alike at its first performance. 'They are not for you but for a later age' the composer is said to have responded to his critics.
