Description
In this mix of Romantic and the Modern, Schubert's String Quartet No. 14 (Death and the Maiden) is accompanied by Ravel's only foray into this genre. The Hagen is known for its juxtapositions; other programs have married a boundary-pushing Mozart quartet with one by Beethoven.

"Truly impressive … [is] the intuitive tightness of the playing, the speedy reflexes born of a kind of telepathy."—The Independent

"Schubert's masterpiece was recorded in an ideal setting: the high-ceilinged, hard surfaced baroque library in Vorau, Austria. Even before the musicians start to play, one could anticipate the aural feast that was to follow. This family quartet plays with a unity of purpose and dedication that could serve as a model to all such groups. The music, a towering masterpiece of the quartet repertoire needs no comment—it is performed to perfection. The Ravel work, recorded 13 years later in Salzburg, is also given a great performance."—Cliff's Classics
