Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart - String Quartet, K421 in D minor

A lecture and performance of this Mozart string quartet.


This is one of Mozart's six so-called "Haydn" quartets, dedicated to his famous predecessor and, as Mozart admitted in the dedication, the fruit of "langer und mühsamer Arbeit" (long and arduous work). The D minor quartet was probably completed in 1783 and its minor key first movement shows much evidence of that "Arbeit" in its strange reversals of usual quartet practice, with a lyrical, song-like opening that then breaks down into instability as the movement progresses.
