Goldmund Quartet - Teaser News CD Debut Haydn String Quartets


On their debut album the Goldmund Quartet presents three quartets by the „father of string quartet“ Joseph Haydn.
By recording the first, a middle one and the last string quartet by the composer, the quartet doesn’t only show the compositorial development of Haydn, but also their personal relationship towards the founder of this genre. „Intonation, articulation, phrasing, balance – you can hear all these elements, which define fine quartet playing, in Haydn’s music“, which is why the Goldmunds chose Haydn for their debut album. The Op.1/1 form 1757/58, consists of five movements, clearly evolved from the divertimento form of that time. Towards the fifth „Russian“ quartet Op.33 the ensemble has a special relationship. „It is the first piece that we played together as a quartet and it’s interesting to see – given our own development – how there are always new things to discover“. Of the two last quartets by Haydn, written 1799, the ‚boys of Goldmund‘ chose the no.1. „The individual voices become much more independent, comment to each other and start a lively dialogue“.

The album is released with Naxos.
