Johnson Theatre, Paul Creative Arts Center
Recognized as one of the world’s outstanding string quartets, the Takács Quartet plays with a virtuosic technique, intense immediacy, and consistently burnished tone. The Quartet has been described as having “warmth, exuberance . . . and above all the instinct to play from inside the music.” The Takács Quartet, based in Boulder, Colorado, has been in residence at the University of Colorado since 1983.
The program will include Haydn’s Quartet Op. 77 No. 2, Quartet No. 2 by Bartók, and Shumann’s Quartet Op. 41 No. 1.
