Watch the Takács Quartet perform the first movement of ‘Five Fantasiestucke Op 5’ by Samuel Coleridge-Taylor at the Queen’s Hall.
Compelling insights from an ever-developing ensemble.
The Takács Quartet is among the world’s most accomplished chamber ensembles – and one of its most musically distinctive. It draws proudly on its early Hungarian origins in its vivid musical personality and passionate performances. Its members have been universally praised for their immaculate balance between rich individual playing and compelling overall sound.
The quartet took to the stage during rehearsals for their performance in The Queen's Hall this summer to deliver this intimate music session. Regular and much-admired visitors to the International Festival over many years, their performance celebrates and revives the romanticism and colour of Coleridge-Taylor's work – one of the best-known British composers in his time, but often forgotten since.
This music session is part of our At Home series in partnership with abrdn. Find out more about At Home.
