Joseph Haydn: String Quartet Op. 33 No. 6 By The Armida Quartett

A wandering waltz

Born on 31st March 1732 in the Austrian village Rohrau which then bordered Hungary, Haydn was the son of musically illiterate parents. It was around the age of six that Joseph Haydn left his family home for good to live with another relative who would provide him with his musical training. Waltzes are uncommon among quartets, as are dances. Nonetheless, this work is a wonderful example of quartet composing with the added flares and rhythmic drive one might find in a national ballet performance.
