About this release

The Buchberger Quartet has been at it again. This is the fifth volume of their complete string quartets by Josef Haydn. These two CD’s contain the six quartets opus 20, the so-called ‘Sun’ quartets.

The opus 20 quartets are all autonomous. There is preponderance of minor keys, which is a characteristic of the
so-called Sturm und Drang. The cello plays a more melodic role than in previous quartets. And numbers 2, 5 and 6 have 4-voice fugues as their final movements.
