Notes & Reviews:

"This gracious and sensitive recording of the final two completed quartets by Joseph Haydn gives a transparency to the music. Balance and restrained tempos give depth even to the simplest lines...The evenness of tone among the four instruments, even in the second Minuet, gives the impression of easy performance...The Kodaly quartet gives a superb reading of these quartets, offering the listener an opportunity to hear every note and enjoy the complexity of the writing." -Seabury, ARG
