The Hagen Quartet Performs

For the past few days I have been listening to my favorite string quartet group, the Hagen Quartet, founded in Salzburg, Austria.

I have admired these performers for many years. In fact, imconducted an interview with them and listened to them play the music of Mozart when they came to Carmel, California a few years back.

If you will be in Austria soon, here is a concert that I surely would love to attend:
