The Hugo Wolf Quartet

The University of Redlands School of Music will present a concert featuring the Hugo Wolf Quartet at 8 p.m. on Tuesday, March 11, 2014 in the Memorial Chapel. The program will include the String Quartet in E-flat Major, Op. 33, No. 2, “The Joke” by Joseph Haydn, Lyric Suite for String Quartet by Alban Berg and String Quartet in G Major, D. 887 by Franz Schubert.

For 20 years, the Hugo Wolf Quartet has been a fixture on the international chamber music scene and has fascinated audiences around the globe.

Through training with the Alban Berg, Smetana, Amadeus and LaSalle Quartets and also with Ferenc Rados, the ensemble laid the cornerstone for a highly successful career together. Founded in Vienna in 1993, the Hugo Wolf Quartet soon won such coveted awards as the Special Prize of the Vienna Philharmonic Orchestra and the European Chamber Music Prize, followed by the International String Quartet Competition in Cremona in 1995 – the same year that the ensemble made its debut in the Wiener Konzerthaus. In 1998, Vienna’s Musikverein and Konzerthaus elected the four as Rising Stars. Since then, the quartet has regularly performed in Amsterdam’s Concertgebouw, London’s Wigmore Hall, New York’s Lincoln Center and Carnegie Hall, and Berlin’s Philharmonie, as well as at the Lockenhaus Chamber Music Festival, the Colmar Festival, La folle journée de Nantes and the Schubertiade Schwarzenberg.
