Catalogue Number: 01V038
Description: Only available recording of Hahn’s 1949 quartet since the 19-year-old Valois CD is long gone. As Musicweb International put it way back then: “… four movements imbued with Mozartian levity and unaffected sentiment, Bachian firefly grace, a devil-may-care panache, thoughtful awed reflection (in the Posément) and a Très Vite that has the breezy step and mercurial manner of a man-about-town.” Noga Quartet.
