About

Largely considered to be one of today's best string quartets, the Grammy(r)-winning Takács Quartet "stands at the peak of its powers--at the peak of its profession" (The Boston Globe). The Takács returns on the heels of its triumphant winter 2016 Beethoven concert, a stunning demonstration that the group "knows how to use a warm, inviting acoustic to make a listener lean in and savor tiny musical details" (Washington Classical Review). Join them again for an evening of classics by Wolfgang Mozart, Dmitri Shostakovich, and Edvard Grieg played with fervor and imbued with fresh insight.

Notes from Joseph "Yossi" Kalichstein, Artistic Director of Fortas
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
It is an unequaled pleasure to welcome back a beloved favorite, the Takács Quartet. The stark contrast between Mozart's sunshine and Shostakovich's dark moods, which occupy the first half of the program, gives way to a work we all should know and love, but is in fact a real rarity in concert halls outside Norway: Grieg's First String Quartet. Like Dvorák, Grieg is too easily overlooked, possibly because of his accessibility, folksiness, and innocence. I, for one, am still in love with his directness, humanity, and sincerity.
