The Grammy-winning string quartet "are matchless [in] their supreme artistry." ~The Guardian

The Grammy Award-winning string quartet has been moving audiences and selling out concerts at CU Boulder for more than three decades. Their irresistible blend of virtuosic technique and engaging personality has led The Guardian (London) to proclaim, "The Takács Quartet are matchless, their supreme artistry manifest at every level." This year, the quartet welcomes a new member—CU Boulder Assistant Professor of Violin Harumi Rhodes—acclaimed by The New York Times as a “deeply expressive violinist.”

Performance dates and times: 

Sunday, Sept. 23, 4 p.m.
