Takacs Quartet

Formed in 1975, the Takacs Quartet are widely acknowledged as one of the world's pre-eminent string quartets. In this live broadcast in Radio 3's regular Monday lunchtime series from London's Wigmore Hall, they perform Haydn's Quartet in D, Op 64 No. 5 (known as 'The Lark' because of its soaring first violin line) and a less well known Dvorak quartet, the one in E flat, Op 51. Presented by Sarah Walker.
