Joseph Haydn: String Quartets, Op. 77, Nos. 1 & 2; Op. 103 - Smithson String Quartet

Jaap Schröder & Marilyn McDonald, violins; Judson Griffin, viola; Kenneth Slowik, violoncello

The Smithson Quartet’s set of Beethoven’s Op. 18 Quartets confirmed that ensemble’s raging superlative excellence. So do these late quartets by Haydn. If you love Haydn’s string quartets, this production will send you off the deep end permanently.
