Takacs Quartet

10 Aug - 28 Aug 2017

Takács Quartet promo video. Footage: Keith Saunders


INTERNATIONAL CONCERT SEASON 2017


"Commitment, precision and sparkle." The Boston Globe

The secret behind the enduring love affair between this world-renowned ensemble and its Australian public is both the simplest and hardest thing about chamber music: the interplay between four very different creative personalities. Hear the Takács Quartet meld their sound into amazing unity in classics by Haydn, Beethoven and Dvorák, and a world premiere by Carl Vine.
