The string quartet as we know it today consists of two violins, one viola and one violincello and it was conceived by Haydn and Boccherini practically simultaneously around 1750. The somewhat firmly established relationship between the lead and virtuoso violin and the thematically second violin was challenged when replacing the one of it with a different instrument.
