Hegel Quartet

The Stuttgart-based Hegel Quartet draws on a rich source of inspiration for its approach to interpretation: the mentors and collaborative partners of its members. Some of these are among the greatest musicians of our time: Murray Perahia, Anne Sophie Mutter, Trevor Pinnock, Lang Lang, Daniel Barenboim, Thomas Zehetmair, Andras Schiff , Robert Mann, David Soyer, Miklos Perenyi, Leonidas Kavakos, Nobuko Imai and Jean-Guihen Queyras among others. Their musical experiences began in such places as The Juilliard School and the Curtis Institute of Music as well as the Marlboro, Aspen and Ravinia music festivals. The Hegel Quartet has given some notable concerts in and around Baden-Württemberg, some of which have been broadcast on Southwest German Radio. The Schwarzwälder Bote has praised the Hegel Quartet for its “beautiful sound colors full of melancholy.”
