Takács Quartet
Jeremy Denk, piano

Performance
 

The Takács Quartet — fresh from its performance last season with bandoneón virtuoso Julien Labro — returns with pianist Jeremy Denk.

The intrepid ensemble shines a light on the sole string quartet written by Fanny Mendelssohn, an active 19th century composer whose works were largely unrecognized during her lifetime. Jeremy Denk joins the group for the second half with Schumann’s ebullient piano quintet, one of the very first works to pair the traditional string quartet configuration with piano. Dedicated to Clara Schumann, the fiendishly difficult piano part was first performed by Fanny Mendelssohn’s brother, Felix, when Clara fell ill, though she was at the keyboard for the first public performance a month later.

Program

Franz Joseph Haydn String Quartet in F Major, Op. 77, No. 1
Fanny Mendelssohn Hensel Quartet in E-Flat Major
Robert Schumann Piano Quintet in E-Flat Major, Op. 44
