Product Description

The Lindsays are unstoppable, combining busy concert schedules with a ceaseless stream of recordings: Haydn: String Quartets Op.64 Nos 1, 2 and 3 brings them one step closer to a complete collection by this master. If you like your Haydn immaculately polished, the Emerson Quartet will fit your bill better. But if you prefer your Haydn chamber music to be redolent of the country where it was first conceived and performed, the Lindsays are your bag. There are moments in these new recordings where you can almost imagine the mud on the players' boots, so strongly rooted is their timbre. Their minuets have gusto, their prestos hurtle and when Haydn demands high seriousness they deliver that in spades. Moreover, when the score calls for breath to be held, and for long lines of slow melody to sound, the Lindsays obey with delicate plangency. There are many moments to savour here, from the surprises in the minuet of the third quartet, to the way the colour changes form from bar to bar--like clouds chasing each other across the sky--in the opening movement of the second. --Michael Church

Lindsays at their peak.. Dec 2 2012
By Kirk List - Published on
Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
and Haydn was nearly at his in the opus 64 Quartets. His last 2.5 quartets-opus 77/1 and 2 and the unfinished opus 103 are late and wonderful works, but the six opus 64 are truly glorious-inventive, extremely lyrical and quite uplifting in their happiness. They remind me most of Haydn's opus 33 Quartets, only more complex and inventive . Compare the opus
33 "Bird Quartet" with opus 64/5 "The Lark'. "Bird" may be Haydn's happiest quartet, but it is not quite as accomplished as " the Lark" (and opus 76/4 "The Sunrise," another quartet
depicting triumphant ascent. This sextet is characterized by consistent inspiratiom and sunniness, though 64/2 is in B Minor and adumbrates the D Minor Quinten quartet opus 76/2. The opus 76 set is Haydn's greatest, with two sets of three quartets each followig the opus 64s: opus 71 and opus 74. As usual the Lindasys' Haydn is beyond excellences. They observe
more repeats than the Amadeus Quartet in their very fine readings, a practice which I consider an asset because one can savor the music a little longer.

Well, friends, the supply has dried up... March 3 2011

There is currently only one place to download this fine album that I know of, and that is on the HDtracks website. ASV has apparently worked out a deal with this site, and as a result, they have a great deal of Lindsay releases.

These are the first three quartets of Haydn's delightful Op. 64. The Lindsays provides energetic interpretation in a recording with excellent sound.
