The six string quartets dedicated to his friend Joseph Haydn represent a turning point in Mozart's compositional development.

John Irving also charts the reception of the quartets, drawing upon a broad range of sources: Mozart's letters and diary entries, early newspaper reports, harmony/compositional textbooks, contemporary criticism and early biographies.
