Joseph Haydn & Wolfgang Mozart

1781 was a great year for a 25-year-old Mozart. He made his big move to Vienna as a freelance musician and he met the most famous composer of his time, Joseph Haydn. Haydn quickly became Mozart’s friend and mentor, and they sometimes played string quartets together in Mozart’s apartment.

Haydn had just written a set of groundbreaking quartets that essentially invented the genre, and over the next few years Mozart wrote his own inspired set dedicated to his friend. When Haydn finally heard them in 1785, he said to Mozart’s father: “Before God and as an honest man, I tell you that your son is the greatest composer I know. He has taste and, what is more, the deepest knowledge of composition.

Today, it’s up to you to marvel at Mozart’s talent. His String Quartet No. 17, dubbed “The Hunt,” is your midday masterpiece, right here on CapRadio at 2 p.m.
