Takács Quartet with
Julien Labro, bandoneón

 

With 25 UMS performances since its 1984 debut, the Takács Quartet returns after its complete Beethoven cycle in the 2016/17 season and its digital concert during the pandemic for a special collaboration with the extraordinary French-born accordion and bandoneón virtuoso Julien Labro.

Together, they will premiere new pieces by Clarice Assad and Bryce Dessner, both co-commissioned by UMS through the Music Accord consortium of 11 presenters nationwide. The Quartet will also perform Ravel’s String Quartet, while Labro’s incredible musicianship will be on display during a solo set.

The Takács Quartet was originally scheduled to perform in Rackham Auditorium on Friday, October 16, 2020.
