His court at Berlin became the cello capital of the world and is famed for several string quartets by Haydn, Mozart, and Boccherini. The period instrument ensemble New Esterházy Quartet open their season with three of these: Haydn’s Op. 50, No. 1 in Bb, Boccherini’s Op. 41, No. 1 in c, and Mozart’s “Prussian” Quartet (K. 590) in F.
