About This Performance

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 restrained vibrato—to the master’s awe-inspiring Op. 131 quartet as well as works by Schubert and Webern.

Schubert: Quartet in A Minor, D. 804, Rosamunde
Webern: Five Movements for Quartet, Op. 5
Beethoven: Quartet in C-sharp Minor, Op. 131
