Mozart's best music: where to start
14. Haydn Quartets
Mozart composed 23 string quartets, but the set of six dedicated to Haydn are some of the best examples of the genre. From the mysterious ‘Dissonance’ Quartet, No. 19, to the lively ‘Hunt’, No. 17, the six quartets cover a wide emotional range. What’s more, Haydn loved them, saying Mozart was the greatest composer he knew.
