Young Masters

Some of the most famous composers started out as astonishingly talented youths. Such is the case for Mozart, Mendelssohn, and Strauss, who were precocious performers as children and were writing fully mature compositions by their early 20s. Their three stunningly dramatic masterpieces, each written before its composer turned 30, show the impressive writing of which these young geniuses were capable.


  • Mozart Quartet in G minor for Piano, Violin, Viola, and Cello, K. 478 (1785)
  • Mendelssohn Quintet No. 1 in A major for Two Violins, Two Violas, and Cello, Op. 18 (1826; rev. 1832)
  • Strauss Quartet in C minor for Piano, Violin, Viola, and Cello, Op. 13 (1883-84)
