Takács Quartet with
Jeremy Denk, piano

 

As the Takács Quartet enters its 45th year, it returns to Ann Arbor with a change in personnel: Richard O’Neill will join the ensemble as its new violist, replacing Geraldine Walther, who retires after 15 years with the group. The intrepid ensemble is joined by pianist Jeremy Denk for 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 at a private party by Felix Mendelssohn when Clara fell ill, though she was at the keyboard for the first public performance a month later.

PROGRAM

Mozart Quartet No. 15 in d minor, K. 421/417b
