Eh. What's he listening to? These are some of most vibrant and stylist Haydn I've ever come across: and infinitely preferable to the somewhat impersonal approach of the ensembles aforementioned. Haydn is difficult to get right. Too many ensembles who embue the music with the right amount of vigour, drama and indulgent romanticism do it at the expense of lightness - the Takacs, for instance - and sound like the combined strings of the Berlin Phil. Which is a shame when they have the right idea. But with lightness seems too often to come anemia - for instance the Lindsay's interesting but oddly (for them) gutless recordings of Op 76. The new Doric performance are among the very best put on record.

These works are from one of the seven wonders of the musical world, and they are treated to dull interperpretaions by these guys, all in a wiry monotone sound world lacking fantasy or imaginative display of any kind!
for all their 19th century approach to the works I'd much rather listen to the old Amadeus quartet, or even the tougher sounding Juilliard quartet, atleast they made an attempt to 'say' something to the listener & interpreted the works!
