Dignified/Noble Quirky. Haydn: The Emperor, Fifths and Sunrise Quartets.
Complete your Haydn , Kodály Quartet collection.
Kodaly Quartet, Haydn: String Quartets, "Emperor", "Fifths", "Sunrise". The quartet ends with a speedy vivace in 6/8 time which rounds off a wonderfully satisfying quartet. The last of the Prussian Quartets is nicknamed ‘The Frog’ from the alternating of strings on the same note found in the last movement, It’s an enjoyable little device from the endlessly inventive and humorous Haydn. CDs 16-19 are of the ‘Tost Quartets’ and the naming of them as such is due to a story that made me shake my head in disbelief and wonder.
