Giocoso string quartet play Mozart (The Hunt) and Beethoven (Opus 18 no. 6)

Mozart string quartet in Bb major. Vienna 1784
This is one of a set of 6 written in 1784, which Mozart dedicated to Haydn. The quartet begins with a hunt-like arpeggio call, which pervades the whole trilling and galloping first movement. The second movement, a Minuet, has a gracious gentle melody with weaving accompaniments. The third movement has plenty of imitation, and a beautiful haunting melody. The last movement brings us back to earth; it is a romp where everyone has a go, then ends with triumphant chords. We love it!

Beethoven's Op. 18 nr. 6 quartet has four movements.
The opening has a dynamic energy and drive. In the second movement there is a beautiful melodic line, whilst the third teases both the players and the listeners alike with its use of rhythm. Where is that beat? Then, a mysterious and melancholy start to the final movement, with unexpected harmonies, before this erupts into a lively dance.
There is something for everyone to enjoy in this amazing piece.

About Giocoso:
The members of Giocoso all started their careers as orchestral musicians but came together through their love of chamber music. David and Louise (violin) played together in the CBSO Pam (viola) played for the Royal Liverpool Philharmonic Orchestra and Anthony (cello) played for the BBC Scottish Symphony Orchestra. The quartet have played together for many years and have given successful concerts throughout the Leicestershire area.
