The Kodaly's did an amazing job on Naxos with their Haydn quartets, each cd costing only 40% of other versions. I couldn't wait for each new issue to come out. They got the best out of all these works whether highly rated or not and made available unexplored parts of Haydn's amazing output.
Personally i don't go along with the idea that these early quartets are inferior to Haydn's later output starting with opus 33.

Fernando Fernandez

Los movimientos lentos de los primeros cuartetos de Haydn son tan...tristes, nostálgicos, perfectos, sensibles, profundos, bellos, esperanzadores, desoladores, serenos, magníficos...Música absoluta en su mejor expresión. Haydn el padre de tantas cosas maravillosas.

Very nostalgic !! We played this for a chamber orchestra in 1989 in Darjeeling, India.

The first minuet will always be one of my favorites. It always gets me to move or hum along. The Adagio is also gorgeous; it's very easy to imagine the first violin as an opera soloist singing an aria. The scoring of the other instruments helps with the effect (those pizziacatos at 9:01, for instance).

Melvyn Elphee

Even before Haydn invented the String Quartet proper with Op 20 he gets lovely sounds from four string instruments with the help of the fine Kodaly Quartet. A particularly ravishing Adagio.

Fernando Fernandez

Solo escuchen ese adagio... sublime.

this is one of my favorite works of any genre. he wrote this at 18yo, and it's magnificent. haydn really deserves more attention. where's his well-researched bio and carelessly-made movie bio-pic?

You’re right, they are amazing works; one of the most astonishing things about Haydn is that whilst there are works that can be labelled ‘early’, absolutely nothing can be labelled as ‘immature’.

Even from the very earliest compositions, everything in Haydn is highly professionally composed; he has something new to say, and the technical skill to say it.
