The London Haydn Quartet turns to the six Op 50 quartets. More serious—intellectually taut—than the Op 33 ‘Russian’ quartets which they follow in Haydn’s output, these six ‘Prussian’ quartets dazzle in such committed performances as these.

Gramophone Magazine

March 2016

“These are stylish, faithful accounts of these six great quartets, and if you've been collecting the London Haydn Quartet's ongoing Hyperion cycle, you needn't hesitate”

BBC Music Magazine

April 2016

****

“gut strings and paucity of vibrato notwithstanding, [the London Haydn Quartet] play with all the radiant resonance of timbre of their previous releases in this on-going Haydn series…there is never a dull moment, and the recording is of answering immediacy and bloom”

Classical Ear

29th April 2016

“the four accomplished players display an instinctual and obvious love for the music. These performances are historically informed, using period instruments as well as the 1787 Artaria edition scores with full outer-movement repeats. The results are life-affirming and infectious, realised with a delightful lightness of touch.”

Early Music Today

August 2016

*****

“There is plenty to enjoy in these latest performances by the London Haydn Quartet. Their playing is admirably poised, expansive and superbly recorded…they do have fun with the gleeful sliding notes of the fifth quartet’s closing Vivace…and they really excel in their attentiveness to the music’s lyrical impulses”
