LPO x NG | Joseph Haydn, String Trio in C Major | National Gallery – YouTube

Joseph Haydn’s ‘String trio in C major’ of 1766 paired with a painting by François-Hubert Drouais. Created only a couple of years apart in the 1760s, here we both hear and see everything in its right place; the precision and balance typical of chamber music of the period paired with an immaculate image of perfection that is Madame de Pompadour with her embroidery: https://www.nationalgallery.org.uk/st… With the Gallery closed to the public for the first time in its 196-year history, we collaborated with the London Philharmonic Orchestra to showcase art and music with a nod to Dame Myra Hess.
