Joseph Haydn is considered the creator or “father” of the string quartet. With his total of 68 works for this genre, he laid the foundation for the works of subsequent generations.
Haydn wrote most of his quartets during his long service at the court of the Esterhazys. In the historic setting of the magnificent palace, which dates back to the Baroque period, the string quartet will be the focus of a new festival for a whole weekend.
