With almost two hundred years of history the Leipzig Gewandhaus-Quartett embodies a remarkable piece of Western music history. It is the oldest continuously existing string quartet formation of all time.

The already legendary line-up consists of Frank-Michael Erben (1st violin), Conrad Suske (2nd violin), Volker Metz (viola) and Jürnjakob Timm (cello). The international successfully quartet, played music until 2006.

On this recording the Leipzig Gewandhaus-Quartett is dedicated to the famous string quartets by Joseph Haydn. Haydn, who is considered the “father” of the string quartets, is also the composer of the melody of the German national anthem which can be heard as part of the “Kaiserquartett” on this album. In addition to this it includes also the compositions “Quintenquartett” and “Der Sonnenaufgang”.
