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 hauntingly beautiful Op. 132 quartet as well as works by Haydn and Bartók.

Haydn: Quartet in C Major, Op. 76, No. 3, Emperor
Bartók: Quartet No. 2
Beethoven: Quartet in A Minor, Op. 132

Running time: 2 hours (including intermission)
