Takács Quartet
Stephen Hough, piano

HAYDN Quartet in B-flat major, Op. 76, No. 4, Sunrise
STEPHEN HOUGH String Quartet No. 1, Les Six Rencontres (Bay Area Premiere)
DVOŘÁK Piano Quintet in A major, Op. 81

For its second Cal Performances concert this season, the peerless Takács Quartet collaborates with acclaimed British-born pianist and composer Stephen Hough. 

The ensemble performs the Bay Area premiere of Les Six Rencontres, a new work by Hough as well as his first string quartet; Hough then joins them for Dvořák’s elegant Op. 81 Piano Quintet. Pianist and ensemble have enjoyed a long and fruitful musical relationship, and their recording together of the Brahms Piano Quintet earned a Grammy nomination; as the Guardian noted of this pairing, “chamber music does not get much better.” The Takács also performs Haydn’s Sunrise quartet from the composer’s Op. 76 works, which are prized for their spirit of invention and brilliant ensemble interaction.
