Notes & Reviews:

Only rarely does it happen in the recording industry that repertoire and performers align, so that the resulting performances take on an added glow of authenticity. Thus it was with Haydn and the Schneider Quartet—and over the years these 53 readings have acquired legendary status. For anyone who does not object to early 1950s monophonic sound, a true treat awaits, for despite some serious competition, these recordings have never been effaced. The quartet itself took its name from its leader Alexander Schneider (1908-93), one of the more remarkable musicians of the last century, and like that of second violinist Isidore Cohen (1922-2005), anyone with an interest in, or knowledge of, chamber group ensembles will know in an instant. The performances captured here speak for themselves. This is grand playing from a bygone era, yet truly essential listening.

International Record Review, March 2015
It's an inspiring experience listening to these pioneering records... there is always vitality and a sense of discovery... this is a major historical release - so few of these performances have been available since they first appeared on LP - and great care has been taken over it.
