Notes & Reviews:

For some, challenging the popular ranking of the string quartets of Joseph Haydn might seem pedantic and snobbish. Nonetheless, as with his symphonies, a far too small selection of this group of works has been able to secure a place in the repertoire of ensembles and in the catalogues of record companies. This disc by the Schuppanzigh Quartet, one of the most renowned quartets performing on historical instruments, aims to document the significance of Haydn's string quartets by focusing on the lesser-known works from among the sixty-eight masterpieces Haydn has left us.

Early Music Review, December 2013
Haydn always makes me smile so it's been a cheerful time with him as Composer of the Week on Radio 3... The group's previous Haydn recordings have won awards and it will not surprise me to hear that this one has done the same.

Gramophone Magazine, November 2013
These performances are in no way academic or 'under-interpreted', and nor can they be described as anything less than profoundly refreshing.
