HAYDN String Quartet in D major

Now celebrating his 70th year, John Adams describes The Wound-Dresser as a “statement of human compassion.” “Dynamic” Uruguayan conductor Carlos Kalmar moves us from shadow into light with the lively Overture to Rossini’s The Italian Girl in Algiers and the sixth of Haydn’s dazzling “London” Symphonies. Listen for the allusion to “God Save the King” which delighted Haydn’s audiences at the premiere!
