Ensemble Composer

Notes & Reviews:

This fourth volume of Haydn String Quartets finds period band The London Haydn Quartet on sparkling form. Their previous recordings have been praised for the "glowing sound of gut strings played perfectly in tune... the ensemble's delicacy of nuance and sensitivity to harmonic color, treating the listener as a privileged eavesdropper" (Gramophone). This competitively priced set contains the six Op.33 quartets, which Haydn wrote in Esterhazy after neglecting the genre for a decade, and which immediately became popular around Europe on publication.

Notes & Reviews:

Recording information: Concert Hall, Wyastone Estate, Monmouth (06/25/2012-06/30/2012).
