Three String Quartet compositions, 1766-97 - Joseph Haydn - SAL 3591

£4.99

Product description

Joseph Haydn dedicated the first work performed on this album, D major, to the Viennese merchant Tost, who was also an excellent violinist, and, indeed, this work and the other five string quartets dedicated to Tost, always give a marked supremacy to the violin. Another interesting fact about this work, is it's nickname, 'The Lark', so called by critics, because of the soaring principal theme of the first movement.

Side One : String Quartet in D major 'The Lark', by Joseph Haydn (1790) :-
1) I Allegro moderato 2) II Adagio 3) Menuet (Allegretto) 4) Finale (Vivace)

The F major string quartet, next on this album, is one of a series published in 1766. In the 20th century, some doubt has been cast on the authenticity of these works, because they couldn't be clearly traced back to Joseph Haydn. However, the construction, melodic invention, and development all point to the composer in his early years.

At this time, he had been for some years, the musical director to Prince Esterhazy, and was already a celebrated musician.

Side One : String Quartet in F major, by Joseph Haydn (1766) :-
5) I Presto 6) II Andante cantabile
Side Two : F major (continued...) :-
1) III Minuetto 2) IV Scherzando

The final work on this album, is the String Quartet in D minor, nicknamed 'Fifths'. Composed in 1797, while Haydn was meanwhile working on the 'Creation', it is one of the most important works of Joseph's later period.

Side Two : String Quartet in D minor 'Fifths'-
3) I Allegro 4) II Andante o piu tosto allegretto 5) III Minuetto 6) IV Finale (Vivace assai)

Records graded visually to RRPG grades (record/sleeve) VG+/VG+.
