Notes & Reviews:

The London Haydn Quartet turns to the String Quartets of Op.50. Written in 1787, they are more serious and intellectually taut than his previous set, Op.33, written in 1781. This set was dedicated to King Frederick William II of Prussia and is commonly known as the "Prussian Quartets." They dazzle in such committed performances as these.

BBC Music Magazine, April 2016
Gut strings and paucity of vibrato notwithstanding, [the London Haydn Quartet] play with all the radiant resonance of timbre of their previous releases in this on-going Haydn series... there is never a dull moment, and the recording is of answering immediacy and bloom.

Gramophone Magazine, March 2016
These are stylish, faithful accounts of these six great quartets, and if you've been collecting the London Haydn Quartet's ongoing Hyperion cycle, you needn't hesitate.

Classical Ear, 29th April 2016
The four accomplished players display an instinctual and obvious love for the music. These performances are historically informed, using period instruments as well as the 1787 Artaria edition scores with full outer-movement repeats. The results are life-affirming and infectious, realised with a delightful lightness of touch.
