Haydn Connections, vol.3

Haydn′s corpus of nearly 70 string quartets testifies to his standing as the genre′s foundational figure. Without question, the quartets of Mozart, Beethoven, Brahms, and all who have followed over the subsequent two centuries descend from those of Haydn. From its opening measures, Haydn′s Quartet in C major, op. 20, no. 2 emphatically declares a new style, with first violin sitting quietly as the cello issues a soaring melody. Concluding this volume is Brahms′s Third String Quartet, a work that reveals the composer at the height of his powers.
