The festival ends with the final quartets of both the Op. 20 and Op. 76 sets. Each contains remarkable elements. Structurally, the slow movement of the A major work, Op. 20, No. 6, shows the impact of CPE Bach, while the main minuet theme is a variation of the first theme of the opening movement and the finale a fugue with three subjects. Of the Op. 76 set, meanwhile, Haydn’s contemporary admirer Charles Burney wrote to the composer that ‘they are full of invention, fire, good taste, and new effects.’
