String Quartets - Quotations.
An example of what has been written about string quartets. A Quotation:-
.It took Haydn a while to make his way into real string quartet composition: indeed, it is not known whether some of his early “quartets” were intended for just four players or were really quartet-symphonies for a small string orchestra and usually performed with clavicembalo. The first “String Quartet” by Mozart (K. 80)—whom we later find, at sixteen, waiting out rainy hours in a coach station on his third Italian journey, composing a “quartet” out of boredom—was certainly not yet a string quartet in our sense.
