Haydn: String Quartets, Op. 50 Nos. 1-6 (complete)

Haydn: String Quartets, Op. 50 Nos. 1-6 (complete)

performed from the Artaria edition published in Vienna in December 1787


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.

“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” Gramophone Magazine, March 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” BBC Music Magazine, 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.” Classical Ear, 29th April 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” Early Music Today, August 2016 *****

String Quartet, Op. 33 No. 3 in C major ‘The Bird'


Matangi Quartet

On this CD the Mantangi Quartet perform three String quartets by Joseph Haydn, all of which have subtitles that refer to aspects of nature: opus 76, No. 4 “Sunrise”, opus 50, No. 6 “The Frog”, and opus 33, No. 3 “The Bird”.

The Matangi Quartet was founded in 1999 by four young musicians then studying at the Royal Conservatoire in The Hague and the Conservatory of Rotterdam. In 2003 Matangi completed the two-year, full-time course at the Netherlands String Quartet Academy under the direction of Stefan Metz (cellist, Orlando Quartet). At the Academy, the Matangi Quartet had the opportunity to take lessons from international renowned musicians, including the members of the Amadeus Quartet. The quartet also received intensive mentoring from Henk Guittart (violinist, Schönberg Quartet) for several years. Since then the quartet has become a regular performer on the Dutch chamber music scene and abroad.

In 2002 Matangi was awarded the prestigious Kersjes van de Groenekan Award, an annual prize awarded to exceptional chamber music talent in the Netherlands, and in 2008 the quartet won third prize at the International Joseph Joachim Chamber Music Competition in Weimar. The Matangi Quartet has released several CDs on Challenge Records including “Mendelssohn” (CC72308) in 2009, “Candybox” (CC72353) in 2010, and, alongside the viola da gamba player Ralph Rousseau won the Edison Audience Award in 2009 for their CD “Chansons d’amour” (CC72305).

“the Matangi Quartet's sound contributes more to a series of intelligent, considered interpretations than to a simple striving for self-conscious beauty. Vibrato is used spraingly as an expressive device and the slightly dry acoustic draws the listener in, especially in quieter music...enjoy an hour or more of near-ideal Haydn playing.” Gramophone Magazine, March 2014

“The playing, by a leading young Dutch quartet, is scintillating...Consistently intelligent playing wins out over purely beautiful tone, which here is just right.” The Observer, 15th December 2013 ***
