Haydn (1732-1809) STRING QUARTETS
Peter Cropper violin, Ronald Birks violin, Robin Ireland viola, Bernard
The Lindsays enviable reputation owes much to their authoritative recordings
of the complete quartets of three composers: Haydn, Beethoven and Bartók.
Their recordings of the quartets of Haydn stand out in particular, setting completely
new standards. The wonderful instruments they play on two Stradivari
violins, an Amati viola and a Ruggiero cello make a significant contribution
to the Quartets unique and unmistakable sound.
The Lindsays have made a decision which very few musicians dare to make: at
the height of their international fame they have decided to disband the Quartet.
Together with a voluminous discography, this DVD set is a testimony to an extraordinary
ensemble that has not only set standards for the future but has also done much
to restore Joseph Haydn, father of the string quartet, to his rightful place
in the repertoire.
These seven quartets were recorded in High Definition and true Surround Sound
during the acclaimed Kuhmo Chamber Music Festival in 2004.
