Resonus Classics Records has this month announced the release of the Dudok Quartet Amsterdam's new album: 'Haydn Opus 20, Vol. 1, Nos. 2, 3 & 5'.
The disc features Joseph Haydn's String Quartets Op. 20 Nos. 2, 3 & 5.
''A decade ago, we included one of Haydn’s opus 20 quartets on the program of our very first concert ... the piece opened up a whole new world to us ..." violinist Judith Van Driel has told The Violin Channel.
"In the following years we immersed ourselves in his idiom, developing a strong affinity with it ... more and more we came to truly appreciate the masterly conception and design of Haydn’s quartets and marvelled at his ability to depict life in all its richness using the relatively minimal means of only four string players ...'' she has said.
''We hope our listeners will join us on our journey throughout the complete Opus 20 set!''
