Prince Joseph Lobkowitz played a pivotal role in the creation of two of the finest works in the string quartet canon: Joseph Haydn’s String Quartet No. 1 in G Major, Op. 77 'Lobkowitz', Haydn’s swan song in the genre that he invented, and Günter Raphael's last one, String Quartet No. 6 in F Major, Op. 54 demonstrates an approach to the 12-tone music, which Raphael significantly describes as 'tonal 12-tone'.
