Notes & Reviews:

Haydn's Op.64 quartets were dedicated to Johann Tost, a maverick wheelerdealer and virtuoso violinist of Haydn's long acquaintance. These quartets are altogether more assertive and dramatic than those of Op. 50, with virtuoso first-violin parts tailored to Tost's skills - but in the context of brilliant invention, that transforms mere legerdemain into music of astonishing force and rhetorical boldness: Op.64 No.2 is especially remarkable for its wide tonal reach, and almost orchestral depth of sonority; in the second-movement Adagio, where the first violin weaves wild, gypsy-style fantasies above the brooding chorale-like theme in the lower voices.
