The human heart has inspired countless composers, including Claude Debussy, whose Quartet is included in this post-Valentines Day program. “ I love music passionately,” he wrote. “And because I love it, I try to free it from barren traditions that stifle it.”
Returning for its eighth performance with Coleman since 1984, the Takács String Quartet has long been recognized as one of the world’s premiere string quartets—performing in
North America, Europe, Australia, and Japan. The recipient of a Gramophone Award, the ensemble is equally renowned for its award-winning recordings on the Decca label.
“This is chamber-music playing of overwhelming intensity, insight and intelligence, simply the best…ever heard in concert,” raves the Guardian.
