Does this make this Opus 64 set the one to hear? To be sure, there have been other excellent performances of the works - old timers will recall with fondness the Amadeus Quartet's sweet, strong, and tart DG recordings - but anyone hearing these endlessly inventive works for the first time in the Medici's performances will not likely be disappointed, nor will they likely feel compelled to try others any.

Joseph Haydn's string quartets, Op. 64 is a set of six string quartets composed in 1790. Along with six earlier quartets published under the opus numbers 54 and 55, they are known as the Tost quartets, after the Hungarian violinist and later merchant Johann Tost who helped Haydn find a publisher for the works. Unlike the earlier quartets, Haydn actually dedicated the Op. 64 set to Tost in gratitude for his efforts. Quartet No. 48 in C major, Op. 64, No. 1, FHE No. 31, Hoboken No. III:65.
