Dvořák | String Quartet in E flat Op 51
Dohnanyi | Piano Quintet No 2
Dazzling dexterity, bristling power; poise and elegance: the Takács Quartet delivers vivid, compelling performances full of potent emotion.
In the second of their two complementary International Festival recitals, they indulge in the rich Bohemian colours of Dvořak’s E flat Quartet, Op 51 – often named the ‘Slavonic’ for its whirling rhythms and its gutsy folk spirit.
Alongside the enigmatic beauty and wit of Mozart’s songful B flat Quartet, K589, the Takács players are joined by eminent Canadian pianist – and long-term collaborator – Marc-André Hamelin in Dohnanyi’s Second Piano Quintet. Inspired by Brahms and Schumann, this is urgent, volatile music of immense emotional concentration.
While we take every opportunity to ensure the details for Edinburgh International Festival: Takács Quartet and Marc-André Hamelin 2 are accurate, we always advise that you contact the event organiser before setting out for the event to avoid disapointment.
