5.0 out of 5 stars great quartets and a good introduction to Borodin May 13 2010
By C. Melnychuk - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
These quartets were my first introduction to Borodin's music, and they remain one of my favorite pieces to listen to when I want something "light". The playing by the Budapest Haydn Quartet is very good. They bring out a little bit of the "russianess" in the music while giving a tight, technically sound performance. The recorded sound on the disc is also quite good. Overally, highly recommended.

5.0 out of 5 stars Mystical magical Borodin quartets May 12 2007
By Freeman Gunter - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Smooth, sleek yet beautifully defined performances of two string quartets that are among the composer's best works. I can't imagine more satisfying performances. I play this disc frequently with great pleasure. Freeman Gunter

5.0 out of 5 stars Borodin's Strings Sept. 8 2012
By Eric S. Kim - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Alexander Borodin is known for only his opera, Prince Igor. The rest of his works are basically unknown to a huge fraction of the world's population. Several years ago, I introduced myself to Borodin by purchasing a studio recording of Prince Igor. I was impressed by the rich orchestrations and unique Slavic melodies. Jump to 2012, and this is when I decide to delve deeper into Borodin's music. I recently purchased his two String Quartets, and I do say that I'm enjoying every minute of it. Like most chamber music from the Romantic era, these String Quartets aren't very melodic or catchy at times, and yet the passion and power of Borodin's orchestrations are present. These two compositions come straight from his heart. These are beautiful, astounding works.

The Haydn Quartet (Budapest) give fine performances of both compositions. The sound is polished and clear (credit should also go to Naxos for fine quality).

Grade: 9.7 out of 10
