The world-renowned Takacs Quartet and powerful Canadian pianist Marc-Andre Hamelin perform two complementary concerts of Mozart, Dvorak and Dohnanyi.\nTakacs Quartet\nMarc-Andre Hamelin - Piano\nMozart String Quartet in D K575\nDvorak String Quartet in F Op 96 ‘The American’\nDohnanyi Piano Quintet No 1\nThe glorious, golden melodies of Dvorak’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.\nCelebrated 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-Andre Hamelin, in two programmes full of the rich musical flavours of central Europe.\nDohnányi’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.
