NOW THAT YOU'RE IN YOUR SEAT...
Now that the expression "late quartet" has become the title of a Hollywood movie (which. rnoreO'ler, revolves around a performance of Beethoven's Op.131l it is fair to assume that the implications of the term are well understood.In this case, Nlateness· refers to the fact that with advancing years. many composers' styles became more serious andmore profound i n the film. the musicreflects the issues the members of the quartet encounter as they. too. reach a certain age .
Tonight's program is made up of three quintessentialNlate quartets: Joseph Haydn almost single-handedly turned the string quartet into one of the most sophisticated formsinclassicalmusic.Inhisfinaleffortsinthegenre,writtenwhenhewasinhismid,- 60s. he attained the summit of his quartet-writing:structural perfection is paralleled by an unprecedented range of emotions expressed by the four instruments. Benjamin Britten's third quartet the last composition completed by the English composer born 100 years ago. is unmistakably a farewell to life. while Beethoven's epochal masterpiece in c-sharp minor, as well as the other four he wrote in his final years. were the works that gave rise to the expression "late quartet" in the first place.Every single noteinthethreequartetsheardtonightisamatteroflifeanddeath;standingattheend of their respective careers. each composer attaineda levelof concentration that hadnot been present in their earlier works.These quartets are summations of three lifetimes ofexperienceaswellasprofoundmessagesforposterity.

In theviewof many, Op.76, No. 4 is the finest amongHaydn's83quartets.R3rely, ifever,did heequalitsluminousspiritualityanddepthof feeling. Perhaps Haydn intended this quartet. with its prominent viola part, for his awn use, sincehewasalsoanavidquartetviolist.
The nickname, ' Sunrise: widely accepted in the US and England but seldom used elsewhere, comes from the very opening of the quartet. where the first violin traces a loving curve of ascent above a soft sustained chord. much as the sun gloriously rises to bathe the earth in its radiance. There are two more motifs in the first group:one stated by the viola amidst long held notes in the violins and cello; the other, a repeated rhythmic figure combinedwithnmning 16th- note passages. The second subject starts with the cello playing what is essentially a mirror image- descendinginsteadofascending-of the first subject opening. It continues with an outgrowth of the first subject's last motif. The concluding theme of the exposition is a witty interplay of notes on and off the beat. Although the remainder of the movement can be divided into the customary development, recapitulation, and coda. Haydn creates such a strong feeling of inner cohesion that the overall musical effect is one of sustained. unifiedflaw.
The second movement is one of the slowest and most morose of all Haydn adagiOS. Not conforming to any standard structural organization, it is best described as a free fantasia on the opening five-note motif. Uniformly soft, with only occasional accents. the movement provides little solace and ends in bleak despair.
After two such strong movements,
the unsophisticated peasant charm of the ' Menuetto' offers a welcome respite.With great rhytlunicverve. Haydn bJilds this entire section on the opening motif. The trio that comes in the middle apparently also has its origin in folk music. but the outlook is not nearly so sunnyand cheerfulOver a sustained droneintheviolaandcello,theviolinsplay the rather oppressive melody with its heavy accents. The "Menuetto' returns at the end of the trio.
The ' Finale' is written in the carefree style of Haydn's earlier quartets. The melody is believed to be an adaptation of an English folk song. perhaps one he heard on his trip to London. Organized in three-part form, the middle section is in minor, but with no lessening of its overriding vivacity. To heighten the movement's exhilaration and good humor, Haydn marks the coda (which is a technical minefield for the players) 'Pili allegro: or'faster: andthen'Pilipresto: ' faster yet.' for a thrillingconclusiOIL

A valedictory work if ever there was one, Britten's String Quartet No.3 was written by a dying man. Ever since his open-heart surgery in 1973, Britten was for all intents and purposes an invalid. requiringround-the- clock nursing care and unable to work for more than a few hours a day. It was also the first composition in a long time that Britten wrote without a commission. The group that premiered the work (after Britten's death), the Amadeus Quartet, had had a previous connection to the composer who had collaborated with them as a pianist at an earlier Aldeburgh Festival; yet they didn't
start working on the piece until 10 months after its completioIL (They played it through for BritteninSeptember 1976.)
Critics have called this work the pinnade of Britten's chamber music output, and pointed out its many connections to the composer's final opera Death in Vertice completed in 1973. The opera was based on Thomas Mann's celebrated short story about the writer Gustav Aschenbach who, at the end of his life. discavers t he ultimate image of beauty in the person of the young boy Tadzio. Qearly, this was the most directly autobiographical of Britten's operas. Britten rarelyquotedhisownmusicinhisworks, but in this case, his preoccupation with the musical material of Deatll in Venice didn't
end with the completion of the opera. and motives from it appear in the fifth and last movement of the quartet. It is also significant that in November 1975, his friends took the ailing composer to Venice one last time, and it is there that the movement in question was
completed. Throughout the work, the quartet
idea - four instruments blending their voices - is contrasted with the idea of individual expression. The first movement is titled 'Ouets' after its preferred texture; the third movement is 'Solo,' with the first violin soaring the heights alone, and the last movement begins as a ' Recitative' in which all four instruments take turns as soloists In between such intense arioso moment~ movements two and four (' Ostinato' and ' Burlesque1 feature the players as a unified group.
The quartet may be a valedictory work, but it is also a prophetic composition, giving the lie to any notion of Britten as a ' conservative" composer. At 62 and with his health destroyed, Britten was more adventurous than ever, both harmonically and. in terms of texture. At one point in the third movement, the viola plays arpeggios on the -wrong" side of the bridge; e1SE.Where. the harmonics of the four instruments produce the most uncommon and eerie combinations.

The Quartet is knovm for innovative programming. In 2007 with Academy A ward-winning actor Philip Seymour Hoffman, it performed Everyman in Carnegie Hall inspired by t he Philip Roth novel. The group collaborates regularly with the Hungarian folk ensemble Muzsikas, performing a program t hat explores the folk sources of Bart6k's music.The Takacs performed a music and poetry program on a 14-city US tour with the poet Robert Pinsky.
The members of the Takacs Quartet are Christoffersen Faculty Fellows at t he University of Colorado Boulder. The Quartet has helped to develop a string program with a special emphasis on chamber music, where students work in a nurturing environment designed to help them develop their artistry. The Quartet's commitment to teaching is enhanced by summer residencies at the Aspen Festival and at the Music Academy of t he West, Santa Barbara. The Takacs is a Visiting Quartet at the Guildhall School of Music and Drama London.
