Description
Completing his first quartets in nine years, Joseph Haydn premiered some of them on Christmas Day, 1781, at the Viennese apartment of a Russian Grand Duke. Perhaps the most famous here is no. 2 in E-flat Major ("The Joke"), a piece with numerous false endings and various violations of "good form" for the amusement of Haydn's musically savvy audiences. In addition to these six gems, the Buchberger Quartet also performs op. 42's Quartet in D Minor, which is elegant even by Haydn's high standards. Founded in 1974 on the strength of the musicians' appreciation for Haydn, the Buchberger Quartet has recorded all 69 works by "the father of the string quartet." This two-disc set is part of a series distinguished by the group's passionate yet historically informed playing, and the enclosed booklet features excellent liner notes by violinist Hubert Buchberger.

"The works presented are quite charming, and the Buchberger's interpretations of them are neither overindulgent nor superficial.... It is refreshing to see a quartet demonstrating its historical understanding of the works being performed."—Allmusic.com
