In 1781, when Haydn met Mozart, he called him "the greatest composer known to me either in person or reputation." Three years later he became good friends with the younger composer, and joined him in a "string quartet party" at a Viennese apartment. That was also the year (1784) Haydn wrote his Opus 50 Quartets, which - no surprise - bear a striking resemblance to the style of Mozart! Again we have the Auryn String Quartet.
