About the Artists
Since its formation in 1975, the Takacs String Quartet from Hungary has won acclaim as one of the major quartets on the international music scene. The Quartet tours regularly in Germany, Austria, Italy, Belgium, England, France, Switzerland, and other European countries. It made its Canadian debut in 1981, performing in Toronto, Montreal, and Winnipeg, during a residency at the Banff School of the Arts. Its United States debut came in the fall of 1982, when they performed in New York, Los Angeles, and other cities, to praise from critics and audiences alike. The current two-month tour of the Quartet includes performances in New York, Los Angeles, Toronto, Portland, and their first appearance in Ann Arbor.
In the recording field, the Takacs Quartet has recorded all of the Schumann and Schubert Quartets and arc in the midst of recording the quartets of Bela Bartok. They have recorded for the BBC, CBC Toronto, CBC Edmonton, Radio Basel, Western and Northern Germany Radio, and the Hilversum Radio of Holland.
In 1977 the Quartet won First Prize and the Critics Prize at the famed Evian International String Quartet Competition in Evian, France. It is the recipient of the 1978 Bordeaux Festival Gold Medal, and First Prize winner of the 1978 Budapest International String Quartet Competition. It also won First Prize at the 1979 Portsmouth International String Competition and the 1981 Bratislava Festival Competition.
All four members of the Quartet are graduates of the Fcrenc Liszt Academic of Music and all have studied chamber music with Andreas Mihaly, Gyorgy Kurtag, and Ferenc Rados. In addition to their Quartet appearances, they all perform regularly as solo artists.
