Notes and Editorial Reviews

Joseph Haydn composed about 80 string quartets. They stand out from his chamber-music ?uvre for being among the very first important contributions to string quartet literature, on the one hand, and on the other, for providing a representative cross-section of Haydn's multifaceted creative periods. Haydn wanted to conclude his string quartet ?uvre with a trilogy, adding to the two works Op. 77 No. 1 and 2 a third quartet which, however, he left in the form of a torso in 1803. AWARDED with CHOC DE LA MUSIQUE. The Amati Quartett for this recording: Willi Zimmermann, first violin | Barbara Suter, second violin | Nicolas Corti, viola | Johannes Degen, violoncello Composers
Joseph Haydn (1732?1809)
Wladimir Vogel (1896?1984)
