The bumpy relationship between Beethoven and Haydn


In ‘Stubborn Student’: Haydn and Beethoven.


Two superb string quartets whose main themes of the opening movements are so closely related that we suspect Haydn inspired Beethoven. Haydn’s quartet Op. 50/1 is performed on four ancient Amati instruments, two of which once belonged to Mendelssohn and one to Paganini. (see photo).

In Beethoven’s Op. 18/1, we can hear that he had learned how dramatic silence can be. He was thinking of the final moments of Romeo and Juliet.
