  • Takács Quartet

Originally founded in 1975 in Budapest, but long resident at the University of Colorado, the quartet has consistently maintained a high ranking in the international league table of such ensembles, admired for performances and recordings of much of the central quartet repertoire as well as less familiar items. Its first programme brings together two masterpieces of Viennese classicism with the more personal idiom of Leoš Janáček in one of his most deeply felt works.

  • Joseph Haydn (1732-1809)
      • String Quartet in F minor Op. 20 No. 5
  • Leoš Janáček (1854-1928)
      • String Quartet No. 2 'Intimate Letters'
  • Interval
  • Ludwig van Beethoven (1770-1827)
      • String Quartet No. 15 in A minor Op. 132
