Carnegie Hall Live

The Takacs Quartet performs an all-Bartok program.  Bartók has been a staple of the quartet’s repertory for decades, with the group’s affinity for his music evidenced in each breathtaking performance.  Having been hailed for uniquely capturing all of the textural elements of the composer’s string quartets, the revered quartet embarks on a cycle of these works with this program of odd numbered quartets from the early, middle, and late periods of Bartók’s canon.
