This event is part of Takács’ Bartók: The Complete String Quartets

(In English)


Composed across three decades, Bartók’s six string quartets offer a fascinating insight into the chronology of his musical style. Hearing all six of them is a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity. The Takács Quartet has performed the Bartók quartet cycle in music capitals throughout the world, where the group is continually hailed for its fresh interpretations. ​Prior to the two concerts at HKU, members of the Takács Quartet will engage in a conversation with Prof. Chan Hing-yan, sharing their thoughts about various aspects of the quartet cycle, ranging from Bartok’s unique musical language, innovative writing for strings, to the group’s experiences in performing the series.

Takács Quartet members:
Edward Dusinberre
Harumi Rhodes
Geraldine Walther
András Fejér

Moderator: Prof. Chan Hing-yan, Department of Music, HKU
