Aboard the 1898 steam ferryboat Berkeley on San Diego’s harbor, the second installment of Haydn Voyages by The Hausmann Quartet will set the “father of the string quartet” with an unlikely starboard to his port. John Cage, the post-war avant-garde trailblazing composer’s philosophical work, String Quartet in Four Parts, will be coupled with Haydn’s opus 20 series (“Sun”). The two titans will continue to beam their influence on future generations of composers and music fans alike and the Berkeley is ready for this colossal tidal clash.
