When we had decided to record this CD, we were unanimous in our wish that there had to be a piece by our great hero, the father of the string quartet, Joseph Haydn. How we all would have liked to have known him personally. The quartets of Haydn are so multifaceted that they offer a challenge to amateurs and professionals alike. Technically the music often appears simple, but those who look further into these pieces will find one surprise after the other, as well as crazy themes, harmonies and sequences. We have tried to record the Bach-like purity, almost sanctity of this quartet.
