This is one of the most celebrated ‘authentic instruments’ ensembles, and one of the first to take historically-informed practice beyond the Baroque era. Their playing has both great tonal beauty and consuming insight and this is acknowledged throughout the world. Here they are playing what they have always done best: Haydn and Mozart, coupled with something new, Schumann’s third quartet. All the works have a melancholic side to them and reach emotional depths.
