Takacs Quartet - Bartok String Quartets

Presented by Sara Mohr-Pietsch

Live from The Queen Elizabeth Hall

The Takacs Quartet plays Bartok String Quartets

One of the great string quartets of our time perform three quartets by the Hungarian master. Spanning the composer's creative maturity, the quartets chart the inner workings of Bartok's mind in all its complexity, humour, desolation and nocturnal beauty.
