Buffalo Chamber Music Society | Takács Quartet
Tuesday, April 26, 2022
Mary Seaton Room, 8:00 pm
The Buffalo Chamber Music Society presents the Takács Quartet at Kleinhans Music Hall.
The Takács Quartet remains one of the world’s most illustrious chamber ensembles. Founded in 1975 by four students at the Franz Liszt Academy of Music in Budapest, the ensemble won a string of awards, toured the United States and became quartet-in-residence at the University of Colorado at Boulder. Only one of the founding members remains, the cellist András Fejér, but the ensemble maintains a stellar performance standard. “The Takács Quartet keeps evolving as the membership shifts and turns over,” the San Francisco Chronicle wrote, “but the fundamental qualities of this invaluable ensemble — a combination of worldly-wise intensity and expressive fervor – seem to remain constant.” The quartet will perform Haydn’s Quartet in F Minor Op. 20, No. 5, Samuel Coleridge-Taylor’s Fantasiestucke and Dvořák’s Quartet in G Major Op. 106.
