“Takács Quartet plays with a unique blend of drama, warmth and humour, combining four distinct musical personalities to bring fresh insights to the string quartet repertoire.”

Without doubt one of the greatest string quartets in the world, we welcome the return of the Takács Quartet. Widely considered chamber music royalty, the quartet’s repertoire spans three centuries of masterpieces, as well as more contemporary compositions, all delivered with delicate artistry and technical excellence.

An undeniable season highlight, the Takács Quartet brings together music from the Old and New Worlds for their tour: Haydn’s mature and lyrical Quartet No. 64 sits alongside Anton Webern’s gloriously romantic Langsamer Satz, Dvořák’s last quartet and Anthony Ritchie’s evocation of the New Zealand landscape, Whakatipua.
