Meany Hall – Katharyn Alvord Gerlich Theater

Single tickets for this event will be available August 3.

The Takács Quartet is known for “making the most traditional of works feel radical once more” (The New York Times). Recognized as one of the world’s great ensembles, they have garnered accolades for their exciting and passionate performances, including the Wigmore Hall Medal and induction into the Gramophone Hall of Fame. The quartet brings a powerful dynamic and interpretive range to a program inspired in part by their Felix & Fanny Mendelssohn: String Quartets, voted 2021 Recording of the Year by Presto Music, plus works by Antonín Dvořák and Benjamin Britten.


 

Even in the most fiendish repertoire these players show no fear, injecting the music with a heady sense of freedom.
