(...) As with other installments in Auryn's Haydn quartet series, this becomes an instant benchmark. The Auryn simply catch the Haydn manner better than any other quartet I've heard, with a well-calibrated emotional barometer in each of Haydn's twenty movements, in addition to lovely tone and spot-on intonation top to bottom. Again, the sound, from Kirche Honrath near Cologne, is excellent, too - resonant but detailed, with a wiede sound stage and convincing depth, as if you're listening from a seat n the middle of the house. An easy recommendation.
