The Program

Following one glorious melody after another, the exemplary Takács Quartet plunges into the poetic depths of Schubert’s masterful cello quintet. In its first Lincoln Center appearance with new violinist Harumi Rhodes, the quartet explores this timeless masterpiece of music, emotion, and empathy.

 

This performance is also part of Great Performers.

“Arguably the greatest string quartet in the world.”
– Guardian (U.K.)
“Revealing the familiar as unfamiliar, making the most traditional of works feel radical once more.”
– New York Times
