he Hausmann Quartet and Maritime Museum of San Diego are excited to partner to present the fourth season of Haydn Voyages: Music at the Maritime, a quarterly concert series performed aboard one of the Museum’s ten historic world-class vessels, the 1898 steam ferryboat Berkeley that operated for 60 years on San Francisco Bay.
Concerts aboard the Berkeley, a National Historic Landmark docked in downtown San Diego next to Star of India, explore the evolution of the string quartet through the lens of Joseph Haydn’s quartet cycle. The consistently creative and adventurous programs presented in the series combined with the idyllic views and sounds of the harbor make Haydn Voyages one of San Diego’s best-loved young cultural institutions.
Mischief and wry humor abound in 2019’s final concert, featuring quirky miniatures by Andrew Norman and Igor Stravinsky to go along with two of Haydn’s best-loved works, his so-called “Frog” and “Lark” Quartets. Come enjoy some clever musical jokes, winks and nods to go along with the beautiful sunset aboard the Berkeley as the fourth season of Haydn Voyages comes to a close.
The fourth season will take audiences on a series of wonderful journeys, with programs that encompass a vast range of themes, sounds, cultures and emotions. Come enjoy world-class performances on the city’s only floating concert hall!
