About the Artists

The Grammy Award-winning Takács Quartet “has long been one of the most eloquent ensembles in the string-quartet world” (The Plain Dealer).

“Masters of every style and mood” (The Guardian),”the Takács Quartet “have the ability to make you believe that there’s no other possible way the music should go, and the strength to overturn preconceptions that comes only with the greatest performers” (Gramophone).

“The four musicians evoked a kind of Bachian timelessness in the slow movement of Haydn’s quartet. It was as if there was all the time in the world to contemplate the glints and shades in a richly colored and faceted jewel” (Los Angeles Times).

“An extraordinary performance. It explained perhaps the reason for this ensemble’s continuous success: a fresh eyes and enthusiastic approach to every work” (Bachtrack).
