Containing some of the most exciting writing for string quartet during the Classical period, this 5 CD boxset brings together immaculate performances by the Tokyo String Quartet of great works by Haydn and Mozart. A particular highlight is Haydn's last great quartet collection, the Erdody Quartets, representing a real peak of musical achievement.
