In the 2024/25 sea­son we will cel­eb­rate our 40th Anniversary!

This is hard to believe.
Four dec­ades with the same line-up (this is unique in the scene) have allowed us to grow togeth­er not only music­ally but also per­son­ally into a sol­id unit.

We thought about what we actu­ally stand for and what we are par­tic­u­larly inter­ested in. Haydn and Schubert are always part of our pro­grams and inspire us again and again. Our com­plete record­ing of Ant­on­in Dvorak’s string quar­tets will be com­pleted this year. Dvorak’s music has accom­pan­ied us intens­ively through many years now and we have grown togeth­er with it. Our quar­tet was deeply influ­enced by our love of clas­sic­al mod­ern music and espe­cially of the New Vienna School.
Giuseppe Verdi’s string quar­tet was fea­tured on our first CD which we pro­duced for BMG/RCA. Louis Théodore Gouvry’s string quar­tet No. 5 was a dis­cov­ery for us. Rarely heard and com­posed in the tem­por­al prox­im­ity to Verdi’s quar­tet these works, sup­ple­men­ted by Erwin Schulhoff’s “5 pieces for string quar­tet” build an excit­ing program.

First ver­sion of Verdi’s String Quar­tet E minor presen­ted in Leipzig.

The Uni­ver­sity of Leipzig, Leipzig Opera and the Uni­ver­sity of Music and Theat­er made an extraordin­ary event pos­sible: “A string quar­tet nev­er heard before”.

On 27 March, 2023 we were able to present the first ver­sion of Giuseppe Verdi’s Quar­tet in E minor from 1873 in the con­cert foy­er of the Opera in Leipzig. The piece has only been heard in the revised prin­ted ver­sion of 1876 so far.

The first ver­sion, peppered with quo­ta­tions from Verdi’s oper­as, was recently pub­lished by Prof. Dr. Anselm Ger­hard, long-time head of the Musi­co­logy Insti­tute at the Uni­ver­sity of Bern and a recog­nized opera spe­cial­ist, in a crit­ic­al edi­tion by Henle Verlag.

In the Lec­ture Con­cert, both ver­sion were con­tras­ted with each other.

In March and sum­mer 2023 we will record the next two quar­tets (A minor op. 16 and C major op. 61) at Börne Stu­di­os in Ber­lin for our com­plete Dvořák record­ing
Four albums have already been released.

17th Nord­hess­is­che Kin­der­musiktage with the Vogler Quar­tet are in plan­ning for the peri­od 13–16 June, 2023.

We are happy to real­ize pro­jects with Kas­sel school chil­dren after two years.
In 2021 and 2022, the days had to be can­celed due to the pandemic.

Our con­cert series at Konzer­thaus Ber­lin is enter­ing its 26h season !

Since 1993/94 we have been able to use a Carte Blanche for our own con­cert series in the cham­ber music hall of Ber­lin Konzer­thaus with an annu­ally chan­ging focus and inter­na­tion­ally renowned guests who usu­ally sup­port us in two concerts.

In 2022/23 Andra Dar­z­ins (viola), Lucas Fels (viol­on­cello) and Cas­par Frantz (piano) will per­form­ing with us in sex­tet and quin­tet programs.

Our dates for the 2022/23 season:

Sat­urday —  Decem­ber 3, 2022
Sat­urday — Feb­ru­ary 4, 2023

Sound / Artist­ic Qual­ity / Rep­er­toirew­ert / Book­let:  5 out of 5
“Of con­sist­ent qual­ity
And that applies not only to the great play­ing of the Vogler Quar­tet, but also to the “qual­ity” of the com­pos­i­tions. They are “great” in a lit­er­al sense. […] Again the per­formers are out­stand­ing. As in the pre­vi­ous epis­odes, they hit the Bohemi­an col­or of this music in a par­tic­u­larly delight­ful way. Not to men­tion the tech­nic­al mas­tery. So if you really want to throw your­self into Czech cham­ber music, you’ve come to the right place with this new double CD.”

Fur­ther releases in 2021

Ini­ti­at­or for the record­ing (at Deutsch­land­funk in Cologne in May 2020) is the pian­ist Oliv­er Triendl, our long­stand­ing cham­ber music part­ner and a proven spe­cial­ist in find­ing unknown, often wrongly for­got­ten repertoire.
