Joseph Haydn's string quartets, Op. 64 is a set of six string quartets composed in 1790. Along with six earlier quartets published under the opus numbers 54 and 55, they are known as the Tost quartets, after the Hungarian violinist and later merchant Johann Tost who helped Haydn find a publisher for the works. Unlike the earlier quartets, Haydn actually dedicated the Op. 64 set to Tost in gratitude for his efforts. Quartet No. 48 in C major, Op. 64, No. 1, FHE No. 31, Hoboken No. III:65.

Haydn's six string quartets published as Op. 64 are perhaps the thorniest ones for performers; others have aspects of profound humor and of formal intelligence and exploration, but perhaps nowhere else are the two so intricately knitted together. Good recordings go back to the 78 rpm era, and several strong ones preceded the release of this one, with superior Potton Hall sound, in 2018. Yet Britain's Doric String Quartet has achieved a real standout in its traversal of the set. Its playing is precise yet deeply expressive.
