Henle Verlag HN9210 - Joseph Haydn String Quartets VI, Op42 and 50. Prussian Quartets. Study score sheet music. Urtext Edition, Study score, paperbound.
The final volume of string quartets in the Haydn Complete Edition is about to be published. We are proud to already be able to present the practical edition of the parts and study score of opus 42 and 50. The volume opens with something unusual: opus 42 is a single work, short and surprisingly easy to play; Haydn described it as “something small and with only 3 pieces”. The Quartets op. 50, including the so-called Frog Quartet, are dedicated to the Prussian king Friedrich Wilhelm II, who was a talented cellist. Even though the “solo” at the beginning of opus 50,1 is meant as joke, there are some good passages for cellists.
