Previous composers had written works for two violins, a viola and a cello, but it was Haydn who was to impose upon the quartet the classical form which gave it so much.
Part Three surveys individual opus groups. The authors criticize the 'teleologically driven narratives' (p.3) that impaired earlier accounts of Haydn's string quartets; instead they are at pains to present each quartet collection as an achievement in its own right.

This essay will show how these works display great importance in developing the string quartet through Beethoven’s career, and also how their influences can be found in string quartets of other composers.
