“Takács Quartet plays with a unique blend of drama, warmth and humor, combining four distinct musical personalities to bring fresh insights to the string quartet repertoire.”
Without doubt one of the greatest string quartets in the world, we welcome the return of the Takács Quartet. Widely considered chamber music royalty, the Quartet’s repertoire spans three centuries of masterpieces, as well as more contemporary compositions, all delivered with delicate artistry and technical excellence.
An undeniable season highlight, the Takács Quartet bring together music from the Old and New Worlds for their tour: Haydn’s mature and lyrical Quartet No. 64 sits alongside Anton Webern’s gloriously Romantic Langsamer Satz, Dvořák’s last quartet, and Anthony Ritchie’s evocation of the New Zealand landscape, Whakatipua.
Box office tickets on sale from 17 Feb 2017, earlybird presale from 30 Jan to 16 Feb 2017.
