Notes & Reviews:

Haydn's six quartets published as his Op.76 in 1799, and composed three years earlier, astonished listeners and commentators alike. How on earth could a man advanced in years keep producing such extraordinary music, and show no sign of his creative faculties diminishing? There was no doubt that Haydn had improved upon his previous quartets. New in the Op.76 was the appearance of a distinctly Beethovenian scherzo. It is perhaps worth noting that just before Haydn completed these quartets, Beethoven had been his unruly pupil. The remarkable vision and scope of these quartets has placed them firmly among the greatest in the repertoire.
