Joseph Haydn: »Die sieben letzten Worte unseres

Erlösers am Kreuze« op. 51, Hob. III:50–56 (Transcription for string quartet by Joseph Haydn)

Estimated concert duration 50 minutes

In 1785, Joseph Haydn received a highly unusual commission from a canon of Cádiz in Spain: a meditative piece of music on the seven last words of Christ on the cross for the Good Friday service. This led to the composer writing an overture, followed seven slow consecutive instrumental movements, symbolising the suffering of Jesus, until at the end the pent-up energy explodes in an earthquake set to music. Haydn succeeded in creating a sublime and deeply emotional work, which he himself valued so much that he adapted it for string quartet that same year. The aim was to introduce the work to a wider audience and it continues to enjoy great popularity to this day. With the dark, velvety sound of their period instruments, the Quatuor Cambini-Paris, formed by members of France’s leading early music ensembles, never fail to convey high passion. With this approach, they are almost predestined to turn the purity and meditative power of Haydn’s music into an experience!
