The Hagen Quartet is legendary - and still active 37 years after its foundation. It has been first prize winner of international competitions and has recorded roughly 45 CDs exclusively for Deutsche Grammophon over the last 20 years. Of the original four siblings, three are still present,
including Lukas Hagen as the primarius of the world-famous string quartet. Since 1999 he has been professor for violin and chamber music at the Mozarteum Salzburg. He also spent seven years as concertmaster in the Chamber Orchestra of Europe and is a member of the Lucerne Festival Orchestra under Claudio Abbado.
This masterclass places special emphasis on the music of the Viennese classical period and particularly on the violin concertos of W. A. Mozart. All participants must therefore select and prepare a work from this genre.
A further focus of the course is chamber music (preferably string quartet), aimed at already existing ensembles.
