Notes and Editorial Reviews

In rapid succession, the Stuttgart label TACET has completed the recording of all the String Quartets of Joseph Haydn with the Auryn Quartet. With the last volume, coupling the two Quartets of Op. 77 and the individually published Opuses 103 and 42, we now have all the Haydn Quartets in an exemplary and thrilling complete recording. (...) Full of sustainable substance both in strong-willed forte and in the most tender pianissimo, fascinatingly impeccable in their intonation and completely balanced in terms of sound, one experiences the Auryn Quartet here, once again, as a top-class ensemble.'
