Takács Brief

We won’t speculate about the reasons – but tickets for the Takács Quartet’s performance at the Corcoran Gallery on Friday, March 31st are on sale through TicketPlace.org. There is no reason(1) whatsoever you should not show up at the best chamber music venue in Washington to hear (one of) the best String Quartet(s) play what they are best at: Bartók (second String Quartet plus Mozart K. 465 and Schubert’s Death and the Maiden). Especially not when the tickets can be had for $37. That might look steep to some – but once you’ve heard the Takács in that venue, you’d even think the regular $60 a bargain.


1) Well, there is one reason not to go, namely if you are at the Vadim Repin / Nikolai Lugansky recital at Meyerhoff that night.
