One of the world’s most venerated ensembles, the Takács Quartet returns to San Francisco Performances to perform a program including fellow Hungarian Ernest von Dohnányi, whose lush, neoromantic style was influenced by Bartók and rich folk traditions.

The Takács Quartet, now entering its forty-second season, is renowned for the vitality of its interpretations. The New York Times recently lauded the ensemble for “revealing the familiar as unfamiliar, making the most traditional of works feel radical once more”, and the Financial Times described a recent concert at the Wigmore Hall: “Even in the most fiendish repertoire these players show no fear, injecting the music with a heady sense of freedom. At the same time, though, there is an uncompromising attention to detail: neither a note nor a bow-hair is out of place.”
