The Takács Quartet returns to Segerstrom Center for the Arts on February 28, 2019 at 8:00 p.m. in Samueli Theater. The ensemble, considered to be one of the world’s greatest string quartets, welcomed second violinist Harumi Rhodes earlier this year following the retirement of founding member Kàroly Schranz. Quartet members include Edward Dusinberre and Harumi Rhodes, violins; Geraldine Walther, viola; and Andràs Fejér, cello.
The Takács Quartet, now entering its forty-fourth 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.”
Single tickets start at $39 and are available online at www.SCFTA.org, at the Box Office at 600 Town Center Drive in Costa Mesa or by calling (714) 556-2787.
