The Friends of Chamber Music present Takács Quartet a perennial favourite with their audience, and in 2012, Gramophone announced that the group was the first (and only) string quartet to be inducted into its first Hall of Fame. Their irresistible blend of virtuosic technique and engaging personality offer a window into the Hungarian quartet tradition. This programme will give us a chance to hear the connections in late quartets by Mozart and Mendelssohn, and a late quartet by Dmitri Shostakovich, a great twentieth-century composer who also looked to the 18th and 19th Century quartet traditions.
Polished and intimate, the Vancouver Playhouse exudes a cozy atmosphere that lends a familial dimension to dance, film and theatre performances. The open plan stage makes the space particularly appealing for acoustically-driven performances like chamber music and spoken theatre.Explore This Venue
