The Divertimento Notturno is a three-movement Serenata or Cassazione, a popular genre in Austria during the 18th century and conceived as a musical entertainment. The quartet titled La Caccia (The Hunt), is one of the several string quartets that evoke hunting games, including Haydn Op. 1 No. 1 and Mozart Op. 10 No. 3. The last quartet of the collection, Il Giuocatore (the Gambler), depicts the excitement, despair and redemption after a heavy loss during a game of cards.
