Haydn, still relentlessly experimenting at the age of 60, and larking around in typical lighthearted fashion with musical structure, texture, rhythm and melody....

... and, from the set of quartets dedicated to his dear friend Haydn, 28-year-old Mozart mixes the exuberant "hunt" character of the 1st movement with deep introspective poignancy in the Adagio, and takes a leaf out of Haydn's joke book in the finale ....

.... and, exploiting the richer textures provided by the addition of a second viola, Mozart plumbs darker and deeper emotions, touched with tenderness, before bursting out into a finale of twinkling joy in one of his finest chamber pieces.
