The most important group of works comprises the string quartets, 10 of which have survived. They were composed during the 1770s, when Haydn was developing this class of music. The differing balance between such contrasting musical elements as entries in imitation, courtly melody, swift changes of tempo and unexpected modulations gives each of the quartets its special charm.
