Ensemble Composer

Notes & Reviews:

Joseph Haydn's younger brother Michael was also a highly esteemed composer during his lifetime, and his works were admired by Schubert and Mozart. Michael Haydn was the court composer in Salzburg for 43 years. His numerous sacred and secular works were not printed, however, which is the reason why they are not as well known as those of his famous brother. The Divertimenti recorded here by Piccolo Concerto Wien were written for either a quartet or a trio. Their varied instrumental colors give them a special attraction.

American Record Guide, November/December 2014
The performances are anything. The Quartet in C, scored for the unusual combination of English horn, violin, cello, and double bass is bright and lyrical, and the musicians give it an athletic reading. The Divertimento in C for oboe, viola, and violone is delightfully reedy and mellifluous, and the ensemble plays it with heartfelt emotion.
