Notes & Reviews:
Joseph Haydn effectively invented the string quartet, and his works in this genre document its development form birth to maturity. Reissued here for the first time, the acclaimed recording by The Angeles String Quartet combines technical assurance with interpretative insight, and forms an indispensable part of any chamber music enthusiast's library.
"This is a marvelous set, easily the finest complete cycle available... In short, at budget price this set belongs in the collection of anyone who loves Haydn, chamber music in general, or string quartets in particular, and it's all been recorded with immaculate balances, a fine sense of presence, and genuine tonal warmth. We can only pray that it remains available long enough for music lovers to take note. Outstanding!" -Classics Today (10/10)
