This paper explains that Beethoven studied under Joseph Haydn, the "father of the string quartet," who inspired Beethoven's first six string quartets, including Opus 18/6, written for two violins, a viola, and a cello. The author points out that, because of his troubled personal life, his music often depicts a theme of struggle followed by triumph as is evident in Beethoven's first six string quartets, which were composed before he went deaf. The paper describes each of the four distinct movements of String Quartet Number 6, Opus 18/6: 1. Allegro con brio; 2. Adagio ma non troppo; 3. Scherzo: Allegro; and 4. La Malincona Adagio-Allegretto quasi Allegro. A listening chart for the First Movement is included.
