Axis Mundi of My Haydn Quartet World

As I just finished up my first run-through of the set, the “Seven Last Words” from CD 22 ringing in my ears, I found myself taking a look at all the reviews here. By far, the most useful, valuable, and accurate one is from Johannes Climacus, and I agree with just about everything he says. I didn’t hear nearly the amount of overbearing-ness from the first violin that he (and others) heard, and there were only two notes whose pitch made me say “ouch.” Two notes in 22 CDs! Rubinstein should be so lucky. The tempos are very well chosen throughout — no breakneck speed or overly-emotive slow-downs here. And it doesn’t take long to get out of the iffy early quartets. By the time Opus 17 comes along, each quartet has become a veritable gem. It’s a terrific set, and I’m only sorry I waited till I was 65 to buy it.

  1. This is so very great … I find I have only four CDs from this set, and as I’m consolidating my holdings onto large-capacity discs for archiving, it’s a blessing to be able to acquire the remaining CDs.

  2. You’re my hero whatever. I won’t even mention here the Richter Bach Kantaten that I’m still missing two discs of. That would just be rude, so I haven’t mentioned it :grin:
