The Grammy-winning string quartet are matchless [in] their supreme artistry. ~The Guardian

The TAKÁCS QUARTET, now entering its forty-sixth season, is renowned for the vitality of its interpretations. The Guardian recently commented: “What endures about the Takács Quartet, year after year, is how equally the four players carry the music.” Based in Boulder at the University of Colorado, the Takacs Quartet performs eighty concerts a year worldwide.

 In June 2020 the Takács Quartet was featured in the BBC television series Being Beethoven. The ensemble also released a cd for Hyperion of piano quintets by Amy Beach and Elgar, a fitting way to celebrate Geri Walther’s fifteen years as the Takács’ violist before her retirement from the group. The members of the quartet welcome Richard O'Neill as their new violist and are looking forward to many exciting projects during their first season together.
