The Noble Patron

Be transported to Vienna at the dawn of the 19th century, as Acacia Quartet pay homage to one of classical music’s most influential patrons.

Prince Joseph Lobkowitz played a pivotal role in the creation of two of the finest works in the string quartet canon: Joseph Haydn’s String Quartet No. 1 in G Major, Op.77 'Lobkowitz', Haydn’s swan song in the genre that he invented, and Ludwig van Beethoven’s String Quartet No. 10 in E flat Major Op. 74 'Harp', written in a state of relaxed mastery thanks to the financial support of his patron.
