Прекрасно !!! Теппер Михаил.


I think that the 2nd. movement is one of the finest works that where produced during his time

Last movement in 6/8 time - a sicilienne. Wow!

Peter Lee

The 1st mvt... no wonder it is nicknamed the “How Do You Do?” Quartet:)

P.S.: I’m not kidding; search it up if you don’t believe me^^

Gabriel Fromyhr

1st movement reminds me of the Mozart KV 331 sonata andante, in the harmonic progression.




The last movement reminds me of Mozart KV 421. Considering that Mozart wrote his "Hadyn Quartets" two years after this quartet in 1783, he was probably influenced by Haydn's example.

Elaine Blackhurst

Mozart was challenged by Haydn in a way no other contemporary composer was capable of doing; he knew many of Haydn’s earlier string quartets but the publication of Opus 33 asked major questions to which Mozart responded.

Mozart chose to work on the un-commissioned set of six quartets which he then touchingly dedicated to Haydn ‘Essi sono, è vero il frutto di una lunga, a laboriosa fatica’; they are magnificent, but challenging works, and as you say, they were ‘influenced’ by Haydn - but much more.

Garrett Rowland

Mozart inscribed that work to his "beloved friend Haydn", so it's no doubt a reference.

I dig Apponyi! This quartet is wonderful
