So... Haydn was a tired, worn out old man by 1799 when he wrote this quartet, was he? He obviously hadn't run out of ideas though, had he? Just listen to the presto section 16:34 to 17:39. Sounds like Schubert D814 or D887 or Beethoven or even Mendelssohn. ONLY BETTER.

Daniel A Recte: Mozart died in 1791, Haydn died in 1809; so Haydn survived Mozart by 18 years.

@Daniel A Ok. My mistake.

Daniel A

ROBERT FRANK GILL the fact I said Haydn’s inspiration for the years to come was Mozart ,does not mean Haydn is not innovative , original and an inseparable element of the classical era music and music in fact,not long ago I wrote under some other quartet of his that Beethoven’s late quartets would not have been possible without Haydn’s own bold dissonant and romantic games .. you are interpreting my comments black and white and that is a mistake

Daniel A

ROBERT FRANK GILL that is not what I said ..

robert frank gill

@Daniel A I understand. All credit to Mozart. Almost none to Haydn. Enjoy.

I love the interplay between the first violin and the cello in the first movement. There is some real character that Haydn put into the melodies that are very engaging to listen to.
