HAYDN


Haydn was the first master of Classical string quartet writing. Between 1755 an 1799 he composed more than 80 string quartets that show his personal progress as a composer and charts the development of the genre from the ‘divertimento’ style of light entertainment to the more profound forms composed for the concert stage. Stendhal described the string quartet as “similar to the conversation of four friends”, while Goethe heard a “discussion between four reasonable people”.

Haydn’s string quartets were of major influence on other composers, especially Mozart, who dedicated his mature quartets to the elder master. In this package you can discover some of Haydn’s early string quartets and enjoy such famous works as the ‘Emperor’, the ‘Prussian’ and the ‘Sun Quartets’.
