Quatuor Mosaïques perform Haydn’s string quartets Opus 64 - great music, great playing and great sound
Repertoire: String Quartets Opus 64
Artists: Quatuor Mosaïques
Label: Astrée E 8886
If you are unfamiliar with Haydn's string quartets, this is a good place to start. If, on the other hand, you already know the great man’s chamber music, you will find this CD irresistible. The members of Quatuor Mosaïques met when they were playing with Concentus Musicus Wien, one of the pioneering period instrument ensembles. That same authentic performance ethos also informs these readings.
