Hagen Quartet with Daniel Ottensamer
Three founding members, brothers Lukas and Clemens and sister Veronika Hagen, are still active at the famous Austrian Hagen Quartet, established in the 1970s in Salzburg. Many young string quartets worldwide regard the Hagen Quartet as a model in terms of sound, ensemble playing and their serious commitment to the works and composers of the genre.
Hagen Quartet is known not just for their inimitable style, versatility and unique sound, but also for their discerning and intelligent programme choices. Haydn, Mozart and Schubert, belonging to the so-called First Viennese School, are also the undisputed masters of the string quartet. Here they are brought together in one programme by the internationally acclaimed ensemble.
Daniel Ottensamer, solo clarinet player of the Vienna Philharmonic Orchestra, joins the quartet for this exceptional musical event.
