In 2016 the Ruisi Quartet embark on the first part of their Haydn Quartets Cycle. The group has always had a special affinity for the music of Haydn, and over the course of the year they will perform twenty four of his string quartets in six concerts at St Mary-at-Hill, a beautiful Christopher Wren designed church in the heart of London. 

The concerts will include talks by esteemed violist, composer and teacher Simon-Rowland-Jones, editor of the highly acclaimed new critical/performing edition of Haydn's string quartets for Edition Peters.
