Schumann-Quartett (photo: Harald Hoffmann)

From a young age, the brothers Erik, Ken and Mark Schumann were deeply absorbed by the subtleties of chamber music. Then, when they were joined by violist Veit Hertenstein, the Schumann Quartet launched an international career, garnering the highest praise for their “dazzling virtuosity” (Süddeutsche Zeitung). For their debut in our series, the quartet has chosen Mozart’s galant A major Quartet and the dark First Quartet by Prokofiev, influenced by Beethoven’s quartets. These will also be represented by the Op. 127 quartet, from Beethoven’s audacious late period.
