Takács Quartet

It is already an iconic string quartet, but according to The Spectator, the Takács Quartet has ‘never sounded better.’ At this concert in Oxford’s Sheldonian Theatre, the ensemble opens up Beethoven’s universe via string quartets early, mature and late. They start with the freewheeling atmosphere of the last work from his first set, Op. 18. To end, they perform the culmination of his set inspired by Russia’s fun-loving ambassador to Vienna, Count Razumovsky. In between, one of Beethoven’s most remarkable creations – the universe of emotion and meditation that is compacted into the composer’s Op. 135.

The concert is scheduled to end at approximately 17.00

Tickets: £40.00 £30.00 £20.00 £12.00
