Multifaceted and colorful

The Hagen Quartet's concert cycle for the 2023/24 season is dedicated to juxtaposing Joseph Haydn's early »Erdődy Quartets« and Ludwig van Beethoven's late string quartets with other genre-defining works of the late 19th and early 20th centuries. In this concert, Haydn's »Quintenquartett« (the second of the six »Erdődy Quartets«), so named after its opening motif, and Beethoven's large-scale quartet op. 131 are joined by Claude Debussy's only string quartet op. 10, a key Impressionist work. »Everything in it is clearly and distinctly drawn, despite great formal freedom. [...]; the melody moves as if it were striding over a luxurious, artfully patterned carpet of wondrous colors, from which all screaming and discordant tones are banished«, commented Paul Dukas on its premiere in 1893. French, Wagnerian and Far Eastern music, with which Debussy had come into contact at the Paris World's Fair a few years earlier, merge into a completely unique tonal language in this work rich in instrumental colors and exotic sounds.
