Dvořák: Piano Quintet in A Major, Op. 81

Takács Quartet (Edward Dusinberre, violin; Harumi Rhodes, violin; Richard O’Neill, viola; András Fejér, cello); Jeremy Denk, piano

The stellar combination of pianist Jeremy Denk — winner of a MacArthur “Genius” Fellowship and the Avery Fisher Prize — and the internationally-renowned, Grammy Award-winning Takács Quartet promises music making of unparalleled virtuosity and deep intelligence. In their first DACAMERA appearance, Takács Quartet brings us a Haydn quartet filled with dramatic twists and surprises and Janáček’s first quartet, inspired by Tolstoy’s tale of passion, jealousy and murder. Dvořák’s exquisite, thrilling piano quintet transforms folk themes and dances into one of the most beloved works of the chamber music repertoire.

Classical music doesn’t get much more life-enhancing than this.” — The Guardian on Takács Quartet
