Hugo Wolf Quartett

When: Sun., March 9, 3 p.m. 2014

Composer Hugo Wolf was a prodigious talent whose genius was marred by an unpredictable temperament that included depression, suicide attempts and syphilitic insanity. During periods of sustained creativity, he wrote some of the 19th century’s most compelling music, leaving behind nearly 300 songs. Named in his honor, the Hugo Wolf Quartett hails from Vienna, Austria, where Wolf spent the majority of his life. Founded in 1993, the award-winning foursome is heralded by audiences and critics alike for shunning showmanship in favor of technically driven pursuits. This signature style informs a program of works by Haydn, Mozart and Bedřich Smetana.

Price: $15-25.
