Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart - String Quartet, K499 in D major "Hoffmeister"

A lecture and performance of this Mozart string quartet.


Franz Anton Hoffmeister was in Vienna during Mozart's time in the city, and was a personal friend of the composer; hence the attachment of his name to this quartet, which comes directly after the six "Haydn" quartets and was composed in 1786. Mozart's quartet vision was ever-expanding, in particular into further explorations of counterpoint (in the second, minuet movement) and into the detailed filigree of the Haydn-influenced slow movement.
