Notes and Editorial Reviews

"The Kodaly Quartet are fully worthy of the composer's inexhaustible invention and make a splendid bargain recommendation. Their playing brings joyful pleasure in Haydn's inspiration and there is not the slightest suspicion of over-rehearsal or of routine: every bar of the music springs to life spontaneously, and these musicians' insights bring an ideal combination of authority and warmth, emotional balance and structural awareness."

 Haydn: String Quartets Opus 76 February 26, 2020 By John K. (Raleigh, NC) See All My Reviews "Absolutely delightful. Enchanting lyrical melodies with masterfully composed four part ensembles. One can hear the potential influence Haydn may have had on Mozart. This CD is a definite must have for music lovers of string trios and quartets." Report Abuse
