Joseph Haydn, known as Father of the String Quartet, mentored Ludwig van Beethoven, even though they each had very different paths to greatness. Haydn served as a court musician to a wealthy family, Beethoven refused to serve anything but his own musical goals.

Max Mandel rounds off this Chamber Talk with a conversation with the Calidore Quartet about their upcoming November 16 program and these momentous composers.
