At least since the 1998 world première of String Quartet No. 2, close ties have existed between Georg Friedrich Haas and the Hagen Quartet. The quartet themselves talk of their experiences with intonation, which are helpful when performing the classical and romantic repertoire as well.
To celebrate their 25th anniversary, the Hagen Quartet will also be performing the world première of String Quartet No. 6 in Salzburg on 23 Jan – a piece commissioned by Salzburg’s Mozarteum Foundation, KölnMusik and the Wigmore Hall.
