Notes & Reviews:

The year 2009 celebrated Joseph Haydn as the most important representative of the Viennese classics in addition to Mozart. Among its greatest achievements is undoubtedly the "invention" of the string quartet. The various ways of creating the European String Quartet are illuminated by the Casal Quartett with this project, subtitled "The sound of the 18th century."

MusicWeb International
The playing of the Casal is selflessly assured and alert. The sound they produce is immediate with a nicely blended tone. The recorded sound has an impressive clarity with slight but pleasing reverberation. With a few minor reservations I enjoyed this Solo Musica release greatly and keenly look forward to the third volume in the series.
