Takacs Quartet: Associate Artists

Wigmore Hall’s Associate Artists grace the 2013/14 Season with five concerts chiefly comprising works written within the bounds of the old Habsburg Empire. Their repertoire choices touch on the Vienna of Mozart, Beethoven and Webern and look to the Bohemian and Moravian milieus of Dvořák, Janáček and Smetana.

The Takács Quartet’s deep affinity for the music of Europe’s heartlands nurtures its supremely cultured and penetrating interpretations. It also connects them directly with the traditions of string quartet playing cultivated during the lifetimes of the composers in these programmes. ‘This is chamber music playing of overwhelming intensity, insight and intelligence, simply the best I have ever heard in concert,’ observed the Guardian after an evening in company with the Takács and Beethoven, echoing feelings so often shared by the quartet’s audience.
