About Edinburgh International Festival: Takács Quartet and Marc-André Hamelin 1

The world-renowned Takács Quartet and powerful Canadian pianist Marc-André Hamelin perform two complimentary concerts of Mozart, Dvořák and Dohnanyi.

Takács Quartet

Marc-André Hamelin | Piano

Mozart | String Quartet in D K575
Dvořák | String Quartet in F Op 96 ‘The American’
Dohnanyi | Piano Quintet No 1

The glorious, golden melodies of Dvořak’s ‘The American’ Quartet, understandably one of the composer’s most cherished works, provide the centrepiece for the first of two complementary International Festival concerts from the world-renowned Takács Quartet.

Celebrated for their passionate intensity and searing virtuosity, and drawing strongly on their Hungarian heritage, they’re joined by long-time collaborator, powerful Canadian pianist Marc-André Hamelin, in two programmes full of the rich musical flavours of central Europe.

Dohnányi’s Brahms-inspired First Piano Quintet is music of lush Romanticism and restless emotion, while Mozart’s sublime D major Quartet, K575, opens the concert with its genial lyricism.

While we take every opportunity to ensure the details for Edinburgh International Festival: Takács Quartet and Marc-André Hamelin 1 are accurate, we always advise that you contact the event organiser before setting out for the event to avoid disapointment.
