The Grammy Award®–winning Takács Quartet returns for two nights to perform one of the crowning achievements of 20th-century chamber music: the complete Bartók quartets. Having previously performed this program during the 2013–2014 Fortas season, the Takács will once again give audiences the chance to experience these classics that helped establish the ensemble as one of the top string quartets in the world. Today the group “stands at the peak of its powers—at the peak of its profession” (The Boston Globe).

String Quartet No. 1
String Quartet No. 3
String Quartet No. 5

Program for the October 16 performance: 
String Quartet No. 2
String Quartet No. 4

A Note from Joseph “Yossi” Kalichstein, Artistic Director of Fortas Chamber Music
Created over the span of 30 years, this iconic six quartet set dates from Bartók’s early 20s to his tragic, forced departure from his beloved Hungary as a refugee fleeing fascism to find a new home in America. A worthy successor to the immortal Beethoven Cycle, these quartets are powerful, with uncompromising integrity, seething intensity, and profound emotion. We are so happy to have the Takács play these again for us, this time with a new violinist: Welcome, Harumi!
