String Quartet in G major, Op 44 No 1
EnglishFrançaisDeutsch
The String Quartet in G major Op 44 No 1 has an opening movement whose simple four-bar figure reappears throughout. The following Adagio in D major is conversation-like with its dotted rhythms and triplet passages. This quartet is marked by a minuet which could easily be mistaken for Haydn and the echoes of the finale of Haydn’s Quartet in G major (Op 77 No 1) of 1799 in relation to the concluding Allegro has been remarked upon.
