Hagen Quartet plays Haydn, Debussy, and Beethoven

Chamberfest hosts the Hagen Quartet in their highly-anticipated Ottawa debut years in the making. Hailed as “the ideal string quartet” by the Los Angeles Times, this concert is not to be missed!

The Hagen Quartet has attained an unparalleled position among the finest ensembles of our time, having been declared “the pinnacle of musicality” (Die Presse). For nearly four decades, the Hagen has performed throughout the world and amassed a storied discography of nearly fifty recordings. Based in Salzburg, the Hagen Quartet recently celebrated its 40th anniversary in 2021. In addition to its stunning performances, the Quartet’s approach to the business of quartet-playing sets it apart: the Hagen’s focus is purely on the music it makes, which has been reflected in the group’s enormous success.

Join us for a masterclass delivered by violinist Rainer Schmidt Tuesday, March 5, at 9:00 AM.
