The present-day Schuppanzigh Quartet of course takes its name from the ensemble of Beethoven’s time that gave the premiere performances of many of that master’s quartets. The members of this German group perform on period instruments and have also been active in other well-known period-instrument ensembles, including Concerto Koln, Musica Antiqua Koln, the Freiburg Baroque Orchestra, the Amsterdam Baroque Orchestra, and Les Musiciens du Louvre, in some cases serving as first-chair players. This release is the third in a series of single discs devoted to Haydn quartets. Rather than focus on a single set, the Schuppanzigh Quartet has chosen on each disc to present a selection of three quartets drawn from different periods of Haydn’s productivity, providing a snapshot of the development of his quartet style. The first two installments received rather mixed reviews in Fanfare (33:1 and 33:6). I haven’t heard those earlier releases, but the performances on this new disc, which offers quartets dating from 1772, 1788, and 1793, seem to me generally excellent. In these works the Schuppanzigh players display a colorful, euphonious, well-balanced sonority, a clear and open texture, a subtly flexible tempo control, a fine sense of phrasing, and a telling control of dynamics. --Daniel Morrison
