Haydn's quartets and symphonies, his oratorios and church pieces, please equally on the Danube and on the Thames, on the Seine and on the Neva, and are treasured across the seas as they are in our own part of the world. Original and abundant ideas, deep feeling, fantasy wisely controlled by penetrating study of the art, skill in the development of an idea basically simple, calculation of effort by clever distribution of light and shadow, pouring forth of the slyest human and easy flow and free movement: these are the qualities that distinguish Haydn's earliest and latest productions alike. —Kenneth Slowik
