Tákacs String Quartet

Tákacs String Quartet


 

Mozart, Mendelssohn & Shostakovich

Mozart: Quartet in G K387

Shostakovich: Quartet no 4

Mendelssohn: Quartet in F minor op 80

It's a fair bet that any lover of chamber music will list the Tákacs String Quartet  amongst the world's finest ensembles so we're proud to be able to include them in our 120th season, and with what a programme! 

This well-known Mozart quartet is another of those he dedicated to Haydn. Shostakovich's Fourth Quartet incorporates Jewish folk influences - it had to be hidden away until it was safe for performance. The Mendelssohn F minor Quartet journeys in a darker world than his audience expected but we now know it as his late masterpiece.

Duration: 2 hours with interval
