× Disc 3 honors the great musical tradition of Vienna, the seat of Western music from the early eighteenth century to the dawn of the twentieth. Vienna was the crucible of the Classical and Romantic periods, fostering the innovations of Joseph Haydn—the father of the Classical style—and forward-looking statements like the Serioso Quartet of Ludwig van Beethoven, Haydn’s prize pupil. Beethoven’s vision for a new direction in music would be realized by the Romantic generation in such masterpieces as Johannes Brahms’s Opus 36 Sextet.
