The Edinburgh Quartet, founded in 1960, is one of Britain’s foremost chamber ensembles. In 2018, the Quartet appointed the internationally-acclaimed musician Tijmen Huisingh as its new leader and first violin. Joseph Haydn’s The Seven Last Words of Our Saviour on the Cross was originally an orchestral work commissioned for Good Friday 1786 by the Holy Cave Oratory in Cádiz, Spain. Later, Haydn himself adapted it for string quartet.
