Born to a bassoonist in the court orchestra at Versailles, Hyacinthe Jadin (1776-1800) grew up amid the brilliant grandeur of Louis XVI’s world. A child prodigy, he performed his first piano concerto at the Concert Spirituel in Paris at the age of 13. Before he died of tuberculosis 11 years later, he composed 2 more piano concertos, 12 piano sonatas, 12 string quartets and a handful of other works.

Dedicated to Haydn, the 3 quartets of his op.1 pay homage to the Viennese master a number of times. The slow, somber ‘Largo’ that opens the quartet in B Flat, No.1 in the set is a perfect example. While Haydn only began one of his 68 string quartets with a similarly relaxed opening, he employed a leisurely beginning in a number of his later symphonies. After this abbreviated intro, which is actually in the unusual key of B Flat Minor, a sunny triple metered ‘Allegro’ emerges in B Flat Major with a flurry of furious fiddling as it explodes, transforming this compound first movement yet again. Frequent unexpected rhythmic accents punctate the lilting passages as the section drifts to tranquil close.

After a chorale like start, the following ‘Adagio’ in E Flat allows the 1st violin ample opportunity to explore an extended harmonic landscape while the middle strings supply persistent countermelodies. Syncopated rhythms dot the amiable 3rd movement ‘Menuet’ while a rising bass line underpins the swaying phrases. Playfully integrated melodic lines characterize the finale, a good natured ‘Allegro’. The upper strings and the viola finish each other’s phrases like lifelong friends, dipping occasionally into the melancholy of minor. And in another nod to Haydn, not one, but two false endings jolt the listener before the concluding coda.
