It is not a good idea to start at opus 9 or At this point, Haydn was still finding his feet. He was still working out what the string quartet could do and hadn't quite worked out what he himself wanted to do as a composer.

For this reason, opus 9 or 17 have never really entered the repertoire. They are fine works and worth listening to, but certainly not as a starting point. After Beethoven and Mozart, you will only be disappointed. Or bored. The first fully mature and developed quartets he wrote are the opus These are, in fact, the first great string quartets ever written. They are powerful and often serious works, rich in contrapuntal writing and highly developed in all kinds of ways. For some, the tone is a little too grave or academic, but they are widely regarded as masterpieces and are regularly performed.

After that, you have Opus 33 - fully mature, fully characteristic Haydn. More genial and humorous than opus 20; also, in some ways, a bit lighter. But again, widely regarded as masterpieces. Finally, if you asked a group of Haydn experts to nominate just one set to save from the ashes, it would almost certainly be Opus These are the crown jewels of the Haydn quartets: Haydn at the very peak of his powers.
Playful, moving, complex, sensuous, witty - they have everything. The Lindsays aren't my cup of tea I prefer a leaner, more "period" based sound , but I do have them in opus 76 and they are terrific here - especially in the wonderful slow movements.

Yes, still around, though I haven't contributed much here of late. I'm incredibly impressed, and can understand the rave reviews they've received everywhere. The Leipzig horn and oboe sound is extraordinary, and Chailly who I'd never rated that highly before conducts with exemplary skill, even enabling me to navigate my way through the first movement of the 2nd without getting lost, not something I've achieved before. Knowing what you think of audiophiles, you won't be interested in the fact that I'm listening on 24 bit 96k downloads, but the sound IS excellent.
I'm conscious I may have strayed off topic a tad. I heard the Lindsays live several times, and always enjoyed them. While I'd recommend their studio recordings of Haydn, I'd steer clear of their live recordings - leader Peter Cropper's tone did not always transfer kindly to tape kindly, especially without the potential for retakes. Has anyone mentioned the Mosaiques yet?
I've not checked right back through this thread. For original instrument style Haydn and Mozart they're well worth a try. I agree with Jane's advice to start no earlier than Op The reason I proposed Opp. In this case, you need only the "top ones". However, if he really wants to explore the field as thoroughly as possible, the starting point should be either Op. On the other hand, it is quite interesting to see the evolution of this genre from the very start from the Father of this medium.

With the development of the various works in this field, these qualities become more obvious, advanced, precious. I would suggest, if there is no counter-indication or any limitation whatsoever, to start from the beginning.

In fact I relish the journey I tend to listen a lot to single recordings then when I feel intimate with the music I then buy other recordings to explore more deeply, it is a method that gives me a lot of pleasure. Tue 19th June Thanks again! Thu 26th December Well that's a very succinct comment, Jane, if a little lacking in your recent venom!
