Lukas Hagen - Violin & Chamber Music

(c) Lukas Beck

25 - 31 July 2021

The Hagen Quartet is legendary - and still active 40 years after its foundation. It has been a first prize winner at international competitions and for 20 years has recorded some 45 CDs exclusively for Deutsche Grammophon. The latest recordings are now available on myrios classics. The quartet has been awarded the Echo Klassik Prize twice. Of the original four siblings, three are still with the quartet today, including Lukas Hagen as first violinist of the world-famous string quartet. He was born in Salzburg, studied at the Mozarteum Salzburg and received private lessons from Gidon Kremer. Since 1999 he himself has been professor of violin and chamber music at the Mozarteum University. He was Vice-Rector for artistic events there and is now Director of the Chamber Music Institute. Lukas Hagen receives invitations to serve as a juror at international competitions and is chairman of the jury of the International Mozart Competition for String Quartet. He also gives master classes worldwide. He played for seven years as concertmaster in the Chamber Orchestra of Europe and was a member of the Lucerne Festival Orchestra. In 2004 Lukas Hagen founded and directed the Chamber Music Festival Hagen Open at Burg Feistritz, south of Vienna, for ten years.
