Why is Haydn called the Father of the String Quartet?
Haydn is known as the father of the String Quartet because he was the first one to perform in public with a string queartet. A string Quartet was not well viewed before Haydn. But when he started using it, then it became like a signature for the classical period.

According to Haydn's biographer Griesinger, Haydn's earliest quartets were written for two violins, viola, and cello purely because of circumstance. A Baron von Furnbe…rg hired Haydn to write chamber pieces for a group of his friends who played the above instruments. The works were successful and popularized their particular combination of instruments. While it is true that Haydn wrote music for use by his employers throughout his life, the early string quartets certainly have their background in the traditions of the trio sonata and quartetto concertante.
Maybe you mean 'What are Haydn quartets' They are string quartets.

Well firstly you need the people....a string quartet usually consist of this - Violins ( 2) - Cello - Viola There are also many d…ifferent type of forms Piano Quintet with the above + a extra piano... Piano quartet where you take one of the violins and change it with a piano There are also string quartets and other.... My close friends are in a quartet and make much money for high schoolers.. One performance can lead up to $250+. A really good way to get people is to join a orchestra first. My friends are in CYS and people who need performers find the conducter of CYS. He then finds people and what do you know...they have a quartet perfect for the occasion ...
He wrote 68 string quartets
A string quartet is pretty much what it sounds like it should be -- four string instruments playing together. The instruments are usually 2 violins, a viola and a cello. T…here has been a lot of classical music written for this combination of instruments.
Yes - I found a three LP set of the complete Op 76 Quartets in a dollar bin. It was released by Odyssey, catalog number Y3 33324, and was recorded athte Library of Congress i…n 1954. On the box it says "previously released as SL 203"... Good luck
String quartets and musical chamber ensembles that generally have 2 violins, a viola and cello.

Haydn's quartets Opus,17, 20, and especially Op.33. In1782, Mozart also began a thorough study of the works of Bach and Handel at the urging of Baron van Swieten. These did no…t include any string quartets, yet their influence on the "Haydn" quartets is obvious and strong. Of course, Mozart was also acquainted with the quartets of Richter, Dittersdorf, Vanhal, and the other Mannheim and Viennese composers, but in the "Haydn" quartets he is moving away from their ideas.
Four Movements: 1st Movement: Allegro, Tonic Key, Sonata Form 2nd Movement: Slower Tempo, Subdominant Key, Aria Form 3rd Movement: Lively (Triple Meter time), Tonic Key, Min…uet & Trio 4th Movement: Fast Tempo, Tonic Key, Sonata/Rondo Form
Usually, two violins, a viola, and a cello.
2 violins, 1 viola and a cello. Or as some people say, an arrogant violinist, a bad violinist, an ex-violinist and someone who hates violinists all together.
A standard string quartet is made of two violins, a viola, and a cello. The cello is the lowest.
