INTÉGRALE DES QUATUORS
The Hagens provide tremendous fire and virtuosity,but also total accuracy and technical finesse,in these great works.They also show plenty of sensitivity and insight into the more reflective movements. Performance ***** Recording **** --BBC Music Magazine,Oct 2010
When I originally reviewed their set, I wrote that theirs is a keen,stylised,animated view of the music,leaner than most and especially strong on colour.Revisiting the recordings now for Newton's fine-sounding reissue if anything increases my admiration for the quartet's technical agility and feel for Bartok's idiom. --Gramphone awards issue,2010

Newton Classics is a Dutch label that seems to be releasing some of these jewels in superb production and at less than full price. Check them out. In this case, their contribution to the Bartok discography, and for our enjoyment, is a must-buy.
Arguably the greatest set of string quartets since Beethoven, few listeners will immediately be won over by Bartok's quartets. They were composed at the dawn of modernism and, while so much can be written about them, I'd boil it down to how it seems Bartok foresaw the future of modernism and demonstrated a workable route on a map that is filled with dead ends. The quartets merge intellectual rigor with inspiration from Hungarian folk music - Bartok was an early ethnomusicologist - yet, are highly original in the way such inspirations are folded into the music without 'quoting' folk melodies. Bartok was not sentimental and shunned cliche's, and while these attributes make him fascinating, they also make these works somewhat forbidding the first few rounds.
As for these performances by the Hagen Quartet: I find it useful to consider two ends of a spectrum in how these can be performed. At one end is a highly intellectual and virtuosic manner, generating excitement from the structure, musical effects and musician prowess. In this vein are classic performances by the Juilliard Quartet (1963) and Tokyo Quartet (1st cycle on DG). Both made later recordings that have been less well received, though they changed their approach to make things interesting. The Emerson Quartet also loosely falls somewhat to this end, their general style brilliantly virtuosic and sometimes a little cold. At the other end of the spectrum are performances that are more visceral and organic, tending to emphasize the folk influences more. The Vegh Quartet (2nd 1970s cycle) and Takacs (2nd cycle on Decca) are highly recommended on this regard. This Hagen Quartet set falls in the middle, but more to the Juilliard end. These are virtuosic takes, though I might have wanted a little more irritability and force to some of the way they phrase things, especially as they don't let the folk elements swing and sing as much. There are other strong contenders out there, such as by the Hungarian and Alban Berg Quartets. A couple of underdogs I would champion are the Keller Quartet and the New Budapest Quartet, the latter undeservedly obscure but both are real winners on the more "Hungarian" approach.
These are truly great works of chamber music that do reward returning to again and again. Like Beethoven's quartets, they can withstand very different stylistic approaches that highlight different aspects of the music. Also like Beethoven, they reveal the composer's development, showing his roots in late-romanticism in the early two quartets, a highly innovative mature style in the middle works (3-5), and a valedictory summation that mines the dark corners of the soul.
