WorksString Quartet no.11 in F minor, op.95 'Serioso'
Arirang (arr. Sung-Min Ahn)
Langsamer Satz (Slow Movement)
String Quartet no.1
It was with these words that Lukas Hagen, first violinist of the renowned Hagen Quartett, described the four musicians’ artistic quality after their performance at the International Mozart Competition, held in Salzburg in February 2014, where Hagen was the Head of the Jury. The quartet went on to win First Prize at the Competition.
This first album represents a crossing of their influences, both Korean (Yun, ‘Arirang’) and German (Webern, Beethoven). Here, the Novus demonstrate prodigious technique in the service of exceptional musicality. Their versions of Webern’s Langsamer Satz and Beethoven’s ‘Quartetto Serioso’ will not pale in the game of comparisons.
In the style of a Bartók, Isang Yun’s Quartet, a discovery, takes up material from brilliantly colourful Korean musical folklore. ‘Arirang’ is Korea’s best-known and most popular folk song (inscribed on the Representative List of UNESCO’s Intangible Cultural Heritage of Humanity), a moving tribute from the four musicians to their homeland.
Established at the Korean National University of Arts in 2007, the Novus String Quartet is one of the leading chamber music ensembles in Korea. The Quartet studies under Professors Christoph Poppen and Hariolf Schlichtig at the Hochschule für Musik und Theater in Munich.
