Takács Quartet [CONCERT]

Takács Quartet [CONCERT] Online

Takács Quartet: Edward Dusinberre and Harumi Rhodes, violins, Richard O'Neill, viola, András Fejér, cello

Now in its 45th year, the eminent Takács Quartet holds an undisputed place at the very peak of the profession. The artists perform from their home ground in Boulder, Colorado. Framed by Bartók and Schubert, Beethoven’s op. 132 quartet engages us with the mystery and magisterial writing of the composer’s late works. “To perform, say, the slow movement of a late Beethoven quartet is to attain a blissful state, liberated from the confines of individual personalities,” writes first violinist Edward Dusinberre. “Or at least, that is the experience we hope for. The greatest pieces of music are often the most elusive.”
