JANÁCEK String Quartet No. 1, "Kreutzer Sonata"
BRITTEN String Quartet No. 1 in D Major, Op. 25
DEBUSSY String Quartet in G Minor
The “consistently invigorating” (The New York Times) Takács Quartet is a group “at the peak of its profession” (The Boston Globe). It begins a two-night stay at Carnegie Hall with works by three giants of 20th-century music, including Janácek, who drew inspiration from the Tolstoy story for his “Kreutzer Sonata,” and Britten, who wrote his inaugural string quartet when he was only 17.
