String Quartet – Violin Quartet
From the Viennese Classical period to the present, the string quartet consisting of two violins, viola and cello has been the most important genre of chamber music. The term string quartet refers to an ensemble (quartet) and a musical genre or the works that result from it.
The string quartet originated in the baroque trio sonata in the second half of the 18th century, in the Italian region there are small symphonies, sonatas and concertos, in the German-speaking region quartets. Characteristic for this genre is that the quite traditional instrumentation of viola and cello violins corresponds to the complete string section of the Italian and German baroque orchestra, but the bass part is not supplemented by continuous chord instruments like the harpsichord. As a result, more and more equal parts on a high technical level are possible by the solo performer, where the cello part is no longer used only as a bass line instrumental accompaniment, but to maintain solo passages as well as the middle sound. Over time, this eventually led to the distinction between orchestral and chamber music sports.
This first-rate school was founded almost simultaneously by Joseph Haydn in Vienna in the late 1750s and Luigi Bocherini in Milan around 1761 (the date of composition of his first string quartet). A few years ago, Georg Philipp Telemann and Matthias Georg Monn presented works for a typical string quartet instrumentation. Boccherini’s quartet style quickly became popular after his works were published in Paris in 1767. It is characterized by a skillful and highly sensitive treatment of string music, rather gentle, sensitive emotions, and a rather formal openness (in terms of quantity, sequence of movements). In terms of content, Haydn is more jokes and counterpoint tricks, formally full of experimentation but quickly standardized (with models).
Although the two composers’ quartets are obviously different, they are not completely opposed, so they are known to respect each other, and Bocellini also drew inspiration from Haydn’s work. Both masters had influence in their lives on the quartet works of their contemporaries, and Bocherini created a more Romanesque style of quartet, represented by Giuseppe Compini, Gaetano Brunetti, Giovanni Battista Viotti, and the French composer Jacinte Jardin, etc.; Schubert also accepted Boccherini and Jadin’s suggestions. In Paris, composers like Goseke called the quartet a “quartet concerto” instead of always being a true concert-style quartet in which one (or two) instruments passed a certain mastery (mainly the first violin) shine or dominate.
