“This was music-making of the highest order.”—The Guardian

This German ensemble consists of three brothers who have been making music together since early childhood—Erik, Ken, and Mark Schumann—and violist Veit Hertenstein. The quartet has garnered praise for its “fire and energy” (Süddeutsche Zeitung) in well-received performances throughout the world and has been appointed to prestigious residencies at London’s Wigmore Hall and New York’s Chamber Music Society of Lincoln Center. The ensemble’s first UGA performance is steeped in European tradition (Haydn and Beethoven) and American Protestantism (Charles Ives, who wove hymns into his richly melodious First String Quartet).

Pre-performance talk in Ramsey Concert Hall at 2:15 pm (free admission).
