Notes & Reviews:

For their third Onyx Classics release, the great Borodin Quartet play Haydn's six String Quartets of Op.33, nicknamed the "Russian" quartets. Written between 1778 and 1781, they represent an important and influential shift in style from the flamboyant Op.20 set written nearly ten years earlier. Intimate and subtle, these groundbreaking quartets are the lightest and most humorous of all his mature quartets.

International Record Review
What is most impressive is the Borodin's sensitivity to the Haydnesque features that lend the music its special character, most notably its wit, in the sense of both humour and imagination...In the Borodin's superb accounts, we are reminded of all [Haydn's] virtues in a way that comes closer to the heart of the music than do most of the other [performances] I have heard.

Gramophone Magazine
Readings that are remarkable for their consistency of tone and security of technique. They rattle off fast movements with élan...and serve slow movements well with their rapt concentration.
