A connoisseur’s ideal of intuitive playing and pure musical focus, the Hagen Quartet has been called “the pinnacle of musicality” (Die Presse). Founded in Salzburg in 1981, the quartet is comprised of three Hagen siblings – first violinist Lukas, violist Veronika and cellist Clemens – joined by second violinist Rainer Schmidt. For this extremely rare West Coast appearance, the Hagen Quartet performs quartets by Dmitri Shostakovich and Felix Mendelssohn, along with Crisantemi (“Chrysanthemums”), one of Giacomo Puccini’s few non-operatic works and an emotional elegy written in a single night.
