Composer

Notes & Reviews:

In 1772 the "Sun Quartets" op. 20 (owing their name to the title page of Hummel's Amsterdam edition of 1779) concluded the astonishing series of eighteen works with which Haydn laid the foundations of the classical string quartet. Ten years would pass before the next series of such works followed with the Quartets op. 33. According to the early estimation of the Wiener Zeitung of 1801, Haydn's op. 20 was a decisive factor in the establishment of the composer's fame. Together with the Quartets op.17 composed during the previous year, the Quartets op. 20 operated on a level that no Haydn contemporary could even come close to matching (Charles Rosen), and it would not be exaggerating to rank this collection as one of the most manifold, most experimental, and most enthralling of the eighteenth century (Dietmar Holland).
