5.0 out of 5 stars Seven last words..only one needed...MAGNIFICENT!!, 30 Nov 2003
This review is from: Haydn: The Seven Words (Audio CD)
A cyber friend in my classical world put me on to this cd in October, I showered the stored but could not find it anywhere. Praise be for Amazon!!, this is the String Quartet version of Josef Haydn's setting of the Seven Last Words of Christ on the Cross, incorporating seven movements with a introduction and finale, here the Rosamunde quartet give us a truly realised version of this masterpiece. Each movement is written in adagio form and set from words to music for quartet. For me its one of Haydn's greatest works. I went as far to say as this cd was my musical discovery of the year, the best cd I have purchased from Amazon this year to date. The Rosamunders play in complete harmony with each other, each instrument violin, second violin, viola and cello working individually but also part of the whole to create such thrilling music making. I also own the orchestral version of the Seven Last Words, but believe me when I say that the personal and intimate way to listen to this work is in the quartet form, with the Rosamunders one can't go wrong, buy it from Amazon because the shops probably won't have it for sale!! 6 stars out of 5, its that Damned good. If you are about to add something new to your collection today, you could do no better. Essential listening, purchased from an Essential provider!! J A Taylor. A sheer delight!!
