Notes & Reviews:

The Leipzig String Quartet turns to three quartets from Haydn's op. 33. After more than twenty years of service to Prince Esterházy, it was with this work that the Viennese master tried his freelancer's luck on the music market.

Even in formal matters Haydn clearly distanced himself from everything in the way of courtly style: the aristocratic minuet yields to the revolutionary scherzo, and instead of fugued finales there are rondos and variations. Haydn's choice of the string quartet, a genre so popular in middle-class circles, instead of the baritone compositions so often ordered by his prince speaks for itself.

The members of the Leipzig String Quartet have demonstrated their own mastery in the field of Haydn's music on the six volumes of this series. Historically informed without mere historicizing, in their perfect classical tone, the quartet musicians spread the wealth of the great Viennese master's humor and wit. Pleasure for ear and mind!
