Notes & Reviews:

Joseph Haydn's remarkable series of 68 string quartets encompasses, in effect, his entire compositional career. The stylistic journey Haydn took over this period is striking indeed, and his music reflects the inevitable changes in musical taste across Europe. The Amsterdam String Quartet is one of today's leading period instrument string quartets. Its members are all internationally respected specialists at the forefront of the early music scene.

"Using period instruments, the Amsterdam are particularly illuminating in the early Op. 20/4, pinpointing the bold rhythmic ambiguity of the Menuetto alla zingarese and the strongly driven energy in the Presto scherzando." -BBC Music Magazine ****
