ECO Ensemble String Quartet Intimate Voices: Haydn and Shostakovich Haydn String Quartet in E flat Op. 33 No. 2. “The Joke”. Shostakovich String Quartet No. 8 Op. 110 in C minor The extremes of expression and style are represented by these two major string quartets. Haydn’s sunny “Joke” quartet epitomises the early Classical style of string quartet writing while Shostakovich’s dramatically dark emotional work, written nearly 180 years later, is imbued with personal sorrow and deep meaning.
