Notes & Reviews:
Haydn's 'Seven Last Words of Christ' debuted in April 1787. In July, the publisher Artaria brought out two instrumental versions he had commissioned, for string quartet and piano. The result was unique: seven slow movements preceded by an introduction and concluded with a evocation of the earthquake that struck at Christ's death.
