Contemporary and classical masterpieces from an award-winning quartet

Arvo Pärt Summa

Schubert Quartet in B flat, D112

Schubert Quartet in G, D887

Formed in Budapest, now based in Boulder, Colorado, the multi-award-winning Takács Quartet brings together musicians from Hungary, Britain and America. Gracing the stage of the Glyndebourne Opera House, they pair two quartets by Schubert: one dating from his teens and written for his family, the other dating from two years before his premature death and, it feels, already written for posterity. Arvo Pärt’s Summa, meanwhile, offers a wordless setting of the Credo in the style of a musical mantra.
