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.

string Quartets are 2 Violins, a Viola and a Cello.
All string quartets are made up of two violins, a viola and a cello.
whats that Yes he wrote several. I believe 17 to be exact.
two: (1) First Violin (2) Second Violin Viola Cello two: (1) First Violin (2) Second Violin Viola Cello
Strange as it may seem, there are four (4) players. Almost always in this configuration: * 2 Violins * 1 Viola * 1 Cello
i would say the cello since an actual bass doesnt typically play in a string quartet it usually either 2 violin a viola and cello or 3 violin and a cello :) hope i helped
Traditionally, string quartets are composed of two violins, a viola, and a cello. However, there are some compositions that instead require, for instance, a violin, a viola, a… cello, and a double bass, or some other variation on stringed instruments.
Generally a string quartet consists of two violins, a viola, and a cello. The string quartet is one of the most popular formation of chamber music. Many weddings/gigs/and fund…raisers use string quartets as performers. String quartet pieces are structured like orchestral music. The outer movements are usually fast (usually ending with Presto!). The inside movements are usually slow or dance-like (minuets, etc). If you are considering doing a string quartet, you should start one!... It is an extremely fun type of chamber music so get involved with.
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
