Franz Joseph Haydn: String Quartet in B-flat major, Opus 76, No.4 “Sunrise”
Stephen Hough: String Quartet No. 1, Les Six Rencontres
Antonín Dvořák: Piano Quintet No. 2 in A major, Op. 81
An exceptional opportunity to hear one of the first performances of Stephen Hough’s first string quartet, dedicated to the Takács. Pianist Hough will be in attendance at the performance, and joins the ensemble for the Dvořák quintet. “…rare to see an ensemble that so consistently seeks to find the coherence and greatness of each work on its own terms.” (Geoffrey Newman) “Simply the best I have ever heard in concert.” (The Guardian).
