Hagen Quartet

Event Details

Hagen Quartet

Beethoven: Quartet in G Major, Op. 18, No. 2
Bartók: Quartet No. 3
Brahms: Quartet in A Minor, Op. 51, No. 2

Consisting of three siblings and the violinist Rainer Schmidt, this Salzburg quartet makes "music that challenges convention ... with a beauty that brings you to your knees" (Hamburger Abendblatt). Having recorded the Beethoven quartets over the better part of three decades, the Hagens apply their singular sound - lean and direct, with fleet tempos and less vibrato - to the master's graceful Quartet in G Major, Op. 18, No. 2 and foundational works by Bartók and Brahms.

This programs runs approximately 1 hour and 50 minutes
