Takács Quartet

BRITTEN String Quartet in D major, Op. 25
BARTÓK String Quartet No. 6 in D minor
DVOŘÁK String Quartet in G major, Op. 106

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 ensemble’s second program this season features Dvořák’s penultimate quartet, a journey through color and textural vitality. The swirling sonorities and playfulness of Britten’s first string quartet will be familiar to fans of his operatic masterpiece Peter Grimes, as he was working on both pieces simultaneously. Bartók’s deeply expressive D minor quartet provides a profound emotional counterweight. “What endures about the Takács Quartet, year after year, is how equally the four players carry the music” (The Guardian).

This performance is made possible, in part, by Rockridge Market Hall.

Run time for this concert is approximately 1 hour and 50 minutes, including intermission, but not including any possible encores.
