Catalogue Number: 10N029
Reference: STR 33874
Description: All six of Haydn's penultimate string quartet opus number appeared in 1800 in a Simrock edition with flute replacing the first violin and with the opus number of 109. Using modern instruments here, the octave changes in the original publication have been able to be changed back to their original registers. It's amazing how a mere flute can make such "serious" quartets sound more like divertimenti... Quartetto Modus.
