Virile, colourful performances … sharply responsive to the music's robust earthiness and gleeful unpredictability. On 3 December 1781 Joseph Haydn dictated to his secretary a round robin letter inviting subscriptions to a new set of string quartets. The new Quartets, now know as Opus 33, were dedicated to the Russian Grand Duke Pavel Petrowich (1754-1801), hence their collective nickname. Opus 33 was a great success for Haydn. It was rapidly taken up and re-published in other European capitals, by Hummel in Berlin, by Schmitt in Amsterdam, by Napier and Forster in London, by Guera in Lyons, and by Le Menu and Boyer and then by Sieber in Paris. The order of the Quartets varies in these early editions, perhaps because those publishers who had acquired them unauthorised wished to conceal the fact that their editions were simply pirated. The order in modern editions (and in this recording) follows that established by Ignaz Pleyel for his great collected edition of Haydn's Quartets in parts and miniature score, begun in 1801, which probably had the approval of the aged composer.

In Op 33 all this 'drama, vehemence and weight', to quote Paul Griffiths, were 'displaced as priorities by Haydn's greatest musical asset, namely wit' (The String Quartet, 1985, p 39). The most obvious witty features are a number of musical jokes, hence the alternative nickname 'Gli scherzi' ('The Jokes') for the set — though in all but one of the Quartets the conventional Minuets are also replaced by light rapid movements called 'Scherzo' or 'Scherzando'. No 2, 'The Joke', ends with a strange passage in which the tune, a conventional rondo theme in hunting style, dissolves into stuttering, broken phrases. Just as the audience begins to clap, the players slip in a pianissimo repeat of the first two bars. No 3 seems to have become known as 'The Bird' because of the twittering grace notes in the first movement, and perhaps because the main theme comes fluttering to earth; the birds return in the trio of the Scherzando. The nickname 'How do you do?' seems to have been given to No 5 by English-speaking musicians as a mnemonic for the opening motive of the first movement, though the real joke is the way it starts on a dominant rather than a tonic chord. Haydn uses it in a most sophisticated way to generate much of the melodic material for the movement. Another Quartet that starts in the 'wrong' key is No 1, which sounds like a work in D major for a few bars; the real key, B minor, is only established properly in bar 11. Haydn developed this witty, jocular style further a few years later in his 'Paris' and 'London' Symphonies.
