Hagen Quartet by Harald Hoffmann and Jörg Widmann by Marco Borggreve
The Guardian has praised composer-clarinetist Jörg Widmann for having “much to say about the way we hear the music of the past.” This fascinating composer and world-class clarinetist does just that when he joins the Hagen Quartet as soloist in Mozart’s autumnal and ever beautiful Clarinet Quintet, and gives the US premiere of his own quintet, a work co-commissioned by Carnegie Hall. The Hagen Quartet, called the “ideal string quartet” by the Los Angeles Times, also performs selections from Dvořák’s Cypresses, tenderhearted works based on his youthful love songs.
