Description: Dedicated to Haydn, these quartets (1795) stand apart from all other works in that genre of the time. They're not brilliants, dialogu├ęs or concertants, like those of other French composers and they're not written for amateurs, like many of the quartets from German and Bohemian composers of that period - these were written for professionals. Like Haydn, Jadin skillfully develops concise motifs and rhythmic cells in his sonata-form first movements and pours out his melodic and harmonic charms in their rich slow movements while exhibiting Haydnesque wit and love of popular touches in his minuets and finales. Quatuor Franz Joseph.
