Haydn and the String Quartet

This was the session where I gave you Theory Handout I and we tried our hand at figuring out some keys.

Then we turned to this quartet from Haydn's first mature set, Op. 20 [1772].

String Quartet No. 24 in A major, Op. 20 No. 6

First movement: Allegro di molto e scherzando

Second movement: Adagio. Cantabile

Third movement: Minuetto. Allegretto

Fourth movement: Fuga a 3 soggetti. Allegro
