Notes and Editorial Reviews

These four players respond to the extraordinary originality, the depth of feeling, and the intense vigor of Op. 74 No. 3, one of Haydn's profoundest works. The confidence of the execution is as remarkable as the insights into Haydn's thought processes.

The Hagen give a delightfully insouciant account of Op. 1 No. 1, pausing only to offer something deeper in common with Haydn in the Adagio. But the most compelling reason for acquiring this keenly balanced quartet's latest offering is the account of Op. 74 No. 3, one of the profoundest works in all Haydn's chamber-music output. The four players respond to the extraordinary originality of the writing in the first movement, to the depth of feeling expressed in bold harmonic
Read more twists in the Largo assai, and finally to the intense vigour of the finale. The confidence of the execution is as remarkable as the insights into Haydn's thought processes.
