"Making the most traditional of works feel radical once more."—The New York Times
The peerless Takács Quartet welcomes its newest member, second violinist Harumi Rhodes—the players' distinguished colleague at the University of Colorado—following the May 2018 retirement of founding member Károly Schranz after a career spanning more than 40 years. "We are thrilled that Harumi has accepted our invitation," members of the group said. "She is a wonderfully versatile violinist and chamber musician."
From the complete Bartók cycle (2013/14), to the heroic Beethoven cycle (2016/17), to quintets with pianist Garrick Ohlsson (2017/18), the Takács ensemble seems to raise the bar with each visit, inviting us on their journey through centuries of repertoire and "revealing the familiar as unfamiliar, making the most traditional of works feel radical once more" (The New York Times). The quartet returns with two diverse programs that showcase this ensemble's vast expressive range and ability to bring us to the edge of our seats in both rapt contemplation and delight.
