The Takács Quartet

. June 6, 2012.

Originally from Budapest, Hungary, The Takács Quartet has been in residence at the University of Colorado in Boulder since 1983. Recently, they’re spending so much time in Ann Arbor it almost seems as though they’re based here. The Takács, (to pronounce it correctly, put the accent on the first syllable) arguably one of the finest string quartets in the world since their formation in the mid ‘70s, is focusing on Schubert this year. The University Musical Society presents them three times this season, with their final concert on Friday, April 8, promising to be the highlight of what has already been a very special series. The program features two cherished treasures of the chamber music repertoire, Schubert’s Trout Piano Quintet and Cello Quintet. Pianist, Jeffrey Kahane, bassist John Feeney and cellist, Paul Katz, all also highly respected names in the chamber music world will join the Takács. $24-$48. 8pm. University of Michigan, Rackham Auditorium. 734-764-2538. www.ums.org
