Notes and Editorial Reviews

These last three Opus 33 quartets define the archetype of the classical string quartet, a genre that would henceforth blossom independently of its patrons. Haydn makes of it a music that is light, subtle, intentionally humorous, concise and radiant, capable of leaving private drawing rooms for public concert venues. Mozart immediately detected its originality as would the classic composers of the 20th century.
