Hagan Quartet by Harald Hoffmann
Great string quartets engage in many different ways, from the brief, tightly connected motifs of Webern, to the epic scale of Beethoven, to the lyrical expressiveness of Schubert. There's a melancholy mood throughout much of Schubert's quartet—a work that features the famous songlike second movement. Beethoven’s quartet is a stupendous display of craftsmanship, with each of the work’s seven sections flowing one to the other without pause. The epic journey leads the listener to new tonalities, fugal writing to rival Bach’s, and Beethoven’s quintessential shifts from fury, to tenderness, to jollity.
