Mozart String Quartet No. 16, K 428  
Mendelssohn String Quartet No. 6, Op. 80  

The Ensemble Category winners in last year’s Royal Over-Seas League Competition, the Fibonacci Quartet pairs works by Mozart and Mendelssohn, composed over 50 years apart but equally daring in their use of dissonance and chromaticism. While Mozart’s third ‘Haydn’ Quartet pays witty homage to his older friend and mentor, already dubbed ‘the father of the string quartet’, Mendelssohn’s musical swansong expresses his raw grief at his sister Fanny’s sudden death.
