In this new recording the prestigious Tetzlaff Quartett (Christian Tetzlaff, Elisabeth Kufferath, Hanna Weinmeister and Tanja Tetzlaff) present a programme of String Quartets by Franz Schubert and Joseph Haydn in exemplary performances.

Praised by The New York Times for its “dramatic, energetic playing of clean intensity”, the Tetzlaff Quartett is one of today’s leading string quartets. Alongside their successful individual careers, Christian and Tanja Tetzlaff, Hanna Weinmeister and Elisabeth Kufferath have met since 1994 to perform several times each season in concerts that regularly receive great critical acclaim.

BBC Music Magazine

“This is a coruscating performance from their first icy creeping entrance…I particularly love their evocation of the trio’s idyll as something infinitely distant, untouchable.”

Classical Ear

“I’ve not heard such a compelling version of this prophetic masterpiece [Schubert] since the Juilliards’ ‘Epic’ LP from the 1960s – and the Haydn G major Quartet is granted a similarly perceptive reading, the wonderful Poco adagio third movement especially. Excellent sound clinches a deal that simply cannot be missed”

Gramophone Magazine

May 2017

“The Tetzlaff are profoundly satisfying…with that fastidious care for balance and creative variety of piano and pianissimo playing that are hallmarks of the whole disc”

The Strad

June 2017

“In the finale the players are more interventionist that in the earlier movements, elucidating phrase shapes within the scurrying triplets with touches of rubato or the occasional hiatus. It all amounts to a glistening and powerful performance. The players make much of the curiosities in Haydn’s G minor Quartet, its sudden contrasts, hesitations, asymmetries and abrupt changes of direction… the result is certainly vivid and constantly interesting.”
