Mozart: The "Haydn" String Quartets - Quartetto Classico        (4 of 4 found this review helpful)
  Review by stvnharr February 1, 2005

I purchased this set of the Quartets dedicated to Haydn thinking that this was another one of the East German reissues by Avex Classics.

  Review by brenda February 1, 2005

I find my own judgement about half way between Akiralx and Daland. Yes, as Daland says, this is a somewhat bitty reading of stops and starts. If you want pulse, turn to Karajan and if you want a supremely analytical approach that yields a different kind of interpretation, try Sinopoli ('99), an ... more
