About the Event

Over a three-decade career, the Hagen Quartet have become an unmatched presence on the European chamber music scene, touring and collaborating at a whirlwind pace while releasing forty- five CDs for Deutsche Grammophon. They formed in Salzburg in 1981 and have remained Austria-based, with Vienna’s Die Presse heralding them as “the highest art of existence.” We were very fortunate to host them on an infrequent U.S. tour in 2012, and we are doubly fortunate to invite them back in 2017! The group—which includes three siblings—will be performing on the four Stradivarius instruments previously owned by the Paganini, Cleveland, and Tokyo Quartets. Their program is a sample of chamber music at its  nest and most exciting, from a great quartet whose unusual interpretations are always full of surprises.


in addition to the concert, 2nd violinist of the Hagen Quartet, Rainer Schmidt will coach Princeton student quartets.  The coaching takes place on March 2 at 10AM in Taplin Auditorium in Fine Hall and is free open to the public.
