Takács Quartet

HAYDN String Quartet in F major, Op. 77, No. 2, Lobkowitz
MENDELSSOHN HENSEL String Quartet in E-flat major
BEETHOVEN String Quartet in E-flat major, Op. 127

Winner of last year’s Gramophone Classical Music Award in the Chamber Music category, the renowned Takács Quartet never fails to thrill in its Berkeley recitals. The hidden gem on the ensemble’s first 2022–23 program is Fanny Mendelssohn Hensel’s sole quartet of 1834, a bold, inventive, and distinctive work unperformed in her lifetime and forgotten until the score was discovered in the 1980s. This fascinating composition is matched with Haydn’s ebullient final quartet and the first of Beethoven’s late-period quartets. “What endures about the Takács Quartet, year after year, is how equally the four players carry the music” (The Guardian).

Run time for this concert is approximately 90 minutes, including intermission, but not including any possible encores.
