Takacs String Quartet

Takacs String QuartetThe Grammy Award-winning chamber ensemble returns to Segerstrom Center with a program of works by Haydn, Beethoven and the world premiere of a new work by
composer, Stephen Hough.

The Takács Quartet, longtime favorites of Segerstrom Center audiences, return to Samueli Theater as part of the ensemble’s forty-seventh season of performances. The quartet is renowned for the vitality of its interpretations and for this concert, they bring a special treat with the world premiere of a new work by composer Stephen Hough, commissioned by Center Chamber Music patrons Elizabeth and Justus Schlichting.

The Guardian recently commented: “What endures about the Takács Quartet, year after year, is how equally the four players carry the music.” BBC Music Magazine described their recent Dohnányi recording with pianist Marc André Hamelin as “totally compelling, encapsulating a vast array of colours and textures.” Based in Boulder at the University of Colorado, the Grammy Award-winning ensemble performs eighty concerts a year worldwide.
