Notes & Reviews:

Numerous conjectures swirl around Haydn's String Quartets op. 20. Since ten years passed between his first highly original contributions to this genre and this new group of works, might he have been experiencing a creative crisis? In the ninth volume of their Haydn edition the Leipzig four once again demonstrate the innovative and individual power of this highly fascinating work group now available in full with the new recording of Nos. 1, 3, and 5.

And with the Leipzig musicians this playing is of course in the best hands. The four instrumentalists joyfully savor Haydn's witticisms and toss the chamber balls back and forth with virtuosity. With historically informed playing and bows from the classical period the ensemble uncovers tone colors making the last of Haydn's early quartet radiate with special brilliance - a further glorious moment for all chamber music fans!
