HAYDN: String Quartet in D minor, 'Fifths'/'The Bell'/''The Donkey,', Op. 76, No. 2, HobIII:76 composed by Franz Joseph Haydn (1732-1809). For violin. Instrumental Solo Part and CD. Published by Music Minus One (MO.MMOCD3132).
Haydn's second quartet contains the famous 'witches' minuet' in which the violins, in octaves, lead with a rather spooky tune that is them imitated by the lower instruments, making quite an unearthly canon.
Contains a high-quality printed solo part and a compact disc featuring the quartet in split-channel stereo with the violinist on the right channel; then again in an accompaniment version minus the solo violin part.
