Notes & Reviews:

The Hagen Quartet, winner of the Echo Klassik Award 2011, presents a second album commemorating its 30th anniversary on the Myrios Classics label. The disc combines two works, which are particularly revealing as regards the emotions of their composers: Edvard Grieg's introspective String Quartet, Op. 27, and Johannes Brahms's retrospective legacy, the Clarinet Quintet, Op. 115, masterfully performed with Jörg Widmann.

BBC Music Magazine
Any doubts as to the originality, vision and coherence of Grieg's turbulent score are immediately dispelled in this revelatory performance. The Hagen Quartet approach the music with no preconceptions, bringing an astonishingly fresh, imaginative control of sonority and a subtle variety of texture to each section...This is an outstanding release in every respect.
