The so-called ‘Sun’ quartets of Joseph Haydn’s Op. 20 are often said to represent an unprecedented flowering of his string quartet writing, establishing a high watermark to which every other subsequent composer of quartets has paid homage. The six quartets are not a monument of compositional rectitude or propriety, however – it is rather their flexibility, variety and unpredictability that make them so compelling.

Renowned early music pioneer Sigiswald Kuijken and his Piano Quartet approach Mozart's Piano Quartets K. 478 and K. 493 on this release for Challenge Records. A significant figure in the creation of this genre, Mozart was prompted to write these quartets by a commission from the publisher Franz Anton Hoffmeister, who subsequently declared that K. 478 was too difficult for the amateur market. This performance of the quartets is truly a family affair with Kuijken joined by his daughters Sara and Veronica, along with cellist Michel Boulanger.

If albums can be judged by their covers then this intriguing release from the Zurich-based Galatea Quartet could be Record of the Year. And with typical creativity they don’t pair the venerable Debussy Quartet with its usual Ravel bedfellow, but instead throw in Milhaud’s First Quartet. And what a pleasant surprise it is, a work of real lyrical beauty and elegiac sensibility, until the vibrant finale whose darting rhythms and jack-in-the-box mood-swings so suits the playing style of this seriously engaging and altogether contemporary-sounding ensemble.
