Virtuosic and inspired, the Takács perform with a rapturous intensity that has made them a fixture on the Chamber Arts Society calendar for more than a decade. “The fact is,” says the Guardian, “they are peerless.” This year, they give us the magic of the first of Beethoven’s middle quartets, preceded by late Haydn and followed by mature Schumann.
“The Takács have the ability to make you believe that there’s no other possible way the music should go.”
