About This Performance
A connoisseur’s ideal of intuitive playing and pure musical focus, the Hagen Quartet has been called “the pinnacle of musicality” (Die Presse). This astounding foursome (three of whom are siblings) has performed to sold-out houses in its previous half dozen PCMS concerts and here applies its singular sound—lean and direct, with fleet tempos and restrained vibrato—to masterworks by Mozart and Shostakovich.
Mozart: Quartet in B-flat Major, K. 589
Shostakovich: Quartet No. 9, Op. 117
Mozart: Quartet in F Major, K. 590
