Notes & Reviews:

The Hagen Quartet-unchallenged at the head of the international string quartet elite for 30 years-captivates its listeners again and again. Five years have passed since the end of the group's exclusive contract with Deutsche Grammophon, and now the quartet presents its first recording with Myrios Classics. The anniversary album, produced in the historic Siemens Villa in Berlin, contains works by Beethoven, Mozart, and Webern-three composers of central importance for the ensemble.

"High surface polish and ensemble refinement characterize the Hagen Quartet." - ClassicsToday
