NYC: Takács gives U.S. premiere of Child’s Play by Carl Vine
October 12, 2017
Haydn’s String Quartet in D minor, Op. 76, No. 2, nicknamed the Fifths, is a combination of austere beauty, compelling turbulence, and cutting wit. The Takács Quartet plays this work at Carnegie Hall on Oct. 12, along with the U.S. premiere of Carl Vine’s String Quartet No. 6, Child’s Play. Mendelssohn’s rhapsodic and sorrowful String Quintet No. 2 completes the program, with Erica Eckert as guest violist in the quintet.
