“To me, the Takács will forever be primarily a Beethoven quartet,” wrote David Allen in the New York Times. The Takács’s four preeminent players blend into a whole that far surpasses the individual parts for this all-Beethoven program. Reaching from the weightless B-flat major Quartet to the gravity and grace of the Third “Razumovsky” Quartet, the evening includes with the composer’s last complete work, famously bearing the epigraph “Muss es sein? Es muss sein!” (“Must it be? It must be!”).
