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
