Notes & Reviews:

"All my strength is gone." Joseph Haydn wrote these words on the final page of his unfinished last string quartet. One can hardly believe him when one listens to this new release by the Leipzig String Quartet, and encounters a composer in full possession of his creative powers.

And yet only the two middle movements have come down to us. The minuet, which Haydn untypically sets in D minor, displays harmonic boldness. And the preceding andante also undertakes a long journey around the circle of fifths. Here a composer speaks who did not have to prove anything to anybody but could simply do what he felt was right for him.

Here an outstanding ensemble such as the Leipzig String Quartet is called for, and it rounds off their seventh volume of quartets by Joseph Haydn with the impressive Quartet in D minor op. 42. With exemplary lightness the four Leipzig musicians capture just the right tone.
