The Hagen Quartet combines intuitive interaction with maximum expressiveness. In every glance, in every stroke of the bow, you can sense the familiarity of the ensemble members. The siblings Lukas (violin 1), Veronika (viola) and Clemens Hagen (violoncello) have been playing together in the quartet for 40 years; second violinist Rainer Schmidt has also enriched this tight-knit community since 1987. Despite their immense experience, routine is a foreign word for the ensemble. Curiosity and the joy of experimentation are the hallmarks of the Hagen Quartet. In Klosters, the four Salzburg musicians devote themselves to Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart’s “Hunt” Quartet. In Johannes Brahms‘ Piano Quintet in F minor, there is an artistic encounter with pianist Kirill Gerstein. The evening opens with “Langsamer Satz” by Anton Webern, a beautiful and deeply romantic work written in 1905, inspired by a walking holiday he took with his fiancée in the mountains outside Vienna.
