Mozart wrote his fourteenth string quartet in 1782 in Vienna - one of a set of six quartets which he dedicated to his friend and mentor Joseph Haydn, who said of Mozart "posterity will not see such a talent again in 100 years". This quartet is surprisingly chromatic, perhaps as a result of it being written at a time when Mozart was becoming intimately acquainted with the music of J.S. Bach.

 

The illegitimate son of a Russian prince, Borodin received a wide ranging education that made him a precocious polyglot scientist and musician. He generally took years to complete major works, however he completed his second string quartet while on Summer holiday in 1881, dedicating the work to his wife as a gift to celebrate their engagement 20 years earlier.
