Klosters Music – Encounters
The Hagen Quartet brings together intuitive interplay with the highest expressiveness. In every glance, in every bow stroke, you can feel the familiarity of the ensemble members. For 40 years, the siblings Lukas (violin 1), Veronika (viola) and Clemens Hagen (violoncello) have been playing together in a quartet; the second violinist Rainer Schmidt has been enriching this conspiratorial community since 1987.
Despite the immense experience, routine is a foreign word for the ensemble. Curiosity and the joy of experimentation characterize the Hagen Quartet. In Klosters, the four Salzburgers dedicate themselves to the "Hunting Quartet" by Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart. Johannes Brahms' Piano Quintet in F minor leads to an artistic encounter with the pianist Kirill Gerstein. The evening is opened by Anton Webern's slow movement for string quartet (1905). Inspired by hiking holidays with his fiancée, the composer conjures up his great love in wonderfully late Romantic sounds.
