Abstract

Although Haydn should not be regarded as the father of the string quartet, he contributed more than any of his contemporaries to the rise and growth of the genre. Recently his quartets have been the subject of intensive research, resulting in new editions as well as historical and analytical studies of individual works. Yet this wealth of material, spread across articles in specialized journals or essay collections, is not easily accessible to an interested reader. Hence this new monograph is all the more welcome. Both of them eminent scholars, Floyd and Margaret Grave bring to this undertaking not only a comprehensive knowledge of the existing literature but also an admirable ability to present their material coherently and to supplement it with their own analytical insights
