Franz Joseph Haydn: String Quartets Op.77 And Op.103: String Quartet

Parts | Sheet Music & Songbooks
Subtitle String Quartets Book XI op. 77 und 103
Instrumentation String Quartet
Composer Franz Joseph Haydn
Publisher G. Henle Verlag

These are the last of the nearly seventy quartets in Haydn’s oeuvre. Originally he intended to write a set of six quartets, as so often in the past, but at the time they were written, in 1803, Haydn’s health was so poor that he could not fully satisfy the commission from Prince Lobkowitz. Instead he published only two complete quartets as op. 77. Later he allowed an incomplete work consisting of two middle movements to appear as op. 103, adding to the print the portentous words: “Gone is all my strength, old and weak am I”. Musically, however, these quartets are anything but weak: they represent the aged composer virtually at the zenith of his powers. Haydn even went so far as to call op. 77, no. 2, his “most beautiful string quartet”.
