Through the evocation of birds and animals, the illustration of rain and thunder, or the sound of the waves, nature seems to be an infinite source of inspiration for composers. The Newport Classical festival artists take us on a journey through these touchpoints between music and nature anchored by one of Haydn's most prolific compositions. PROGRAM: HAYDN String Quartet in D Major, Op. 64, No. 5, "Lark" MARTINU Three Madrigals for Violin and Viola BORODIN StringTrio in G Major *Program subject to change
