The Artis Quartet was founded at the Vienna Musikhochschule in 1980. The ensemble studied in Vienna and Cincinnati with the LaSalle Quartet. After many awards at the beginning of the 1980s, the group began its international career, which has taken it to the major musical venues of the world. The Artis Quartet has been giving its own concert series at the Vienna Musikverein since 1988.

This work was recorded at the Salzburg "Mozartwoche" 2001. Here the ensemble plays Haydn's String Quartet in G minor Hob. III:74, one of the quartets which Haydn wrote for his second London visit in 1794. This work was conceived above all to show off the performers' skill and virtuosity rather than to explore innovative harmonies and structures.
