Friends of Chamber Music present the Takács String Quartet
This internationally acclaimed quartet is a perennial favourite with the Friends of Chamber Music audience. The group is regularly resident at Wigmore Hall, London, and was the first quartet inducted into Gramophone Magazine’s first “Hall of Fame.” The group’s irresistible blend of virtuosic technique and engaging personality offers a window into the Hungarian quartet tradition. For its 22nd visit since 1982, the ensemble will play later music by Haydn, an earlier Shostakovich quartet (after last season’s No 11), and a mature Brahms work from 1873.
