Takács Quartet

A world-class ensemble of Hungarian origin, the Takács Quartet performs the complete string quartets of Hungary’s greatest composer in this two-night concert event. Now based at the University of Colorado, the Quartet wears the music of Béla Bartók like “an old but beautifully tailored coat” (Sydney Morning Herald). Their “sharply etched phrasing” and “witty vehemence” (NY Times) highlight the spirited humor and sprightly folk traditions in these 20th-century masterpieces. Explore the entire triumphant cycle with erudite musicians whose “buoyant rhythms, seamless ensemble, and sheer immediacy,” says The Times (UK), “put them in a class of their own.”
