The adagio from string quartet Op. 2, No. 2, also exists in an arrangement for lute and string trio, possibly by Haydn himself (recorded by J. Bream). There are five movements in the version for original but only four in the lute version. (the first menuetto was omitted) In my arrangement I have kept violin I part and arranged the violin II, viola and cello part for guitar. I have made some slight changes to suit the guitar better. The work is more a divertimento than a quartet in the sense of Haydn's later work in the genre - light, cheerful and a bit baroquelike construction and ornamentation.

Franz Joseph Haydn (March 31, 1732 - May 31, 1809) was one of the most prominent composers of the classical period, and is called by some the "Father of the Symphony" and "Father of the String Quartet". A life-long resident of Austria, Haydn spent most of his career as a court musician for the wealthy Esterhazy family on their remote estate. Isolated from other composers and trends in music until the later part of his long life, he was, as he put it, "forced to become original".
