Great performance
Review By frank.d.collins,May 2011

This is an unusual and amazing performance of three classic Haydn string quartets. Every musical idea is expressed with absolute clarity and often with a unique spin. Although I admire the elegant, cool, and ironic style of playing music from the classic period, I also loved this much more emotional performance with dramatic shading of tempo, dynamics, and ensemble. I have listened to this album many times now and never get tired of hearing it.
