Takács Quartet at Wigmore Hall
Live from Wigmore Hall, London. The Takacs Quartet play Haydn, Bartok and Brahms.
Haydn, Bartók and Brahms live from London. Wigmore Hall’s Associate Artists begin their programme with the fourth of Haydn's 'Sun Quartets.' It was this collection that defined the nature of the string quartet for over a hundred years. One of Brahms's first published quartets sees him striving to model each movement on a tiny motif and Bartók’s first quartet mourns an unhappy love affair.
