Hagen Quartet-Beijing Station

​Hagen Quartet

The upcoming season of the Hagen Quartet, recognized as ‘undoubtedly the world’s most famous quartet’, (Neue Zürcher Zeitung) comes on the heels of a highly successful and internationally celebrated 30th season devoted to the complete Beethoven string quartets. The Hagen Quartet starts their extensive touring in the 14/15 season with a Mozart cycle, featuring Mozart’s ten major string quartets in the most important musical centers throughout Europe and Asia. 

This milestone was also celebrated with two new recordings, released on myrios classics, of works by Mozart, Webern, Beethoven, Grieg and Brahms (clarinetist Jorg Widmann joined the quartet for the Brahms.) Both recordings received outstanding reviews from the international press. In its review, the German magazine Fono Forum wrote of the ‘world-class ensemble [… having] advanced even further. Its new vision is breathtaking and can become addictive. […] The richness of colours and emotions is spellbinding.’
