Quotes & Highlights

“Miracle is the only word to describe [Tsujii]. This is truly the act of God.” —Van Cliburn

Description

World-renowned string ensemble Takács Quartet delivers classic repertoire with drama, warmth and humor. The group performs Haydn’s String Quartet Op. 74 No. 3 and Bartok’s String Quartet No. 1.

Joining the Takács Quartet for Schumann’s Piano Quintet is Japanese virtuoso Nobuyuki Tsujii in his Los Angeles premiere. Born blind, the 22-year-old prodigy began his study at the age of 4 and won the gold medal in the 2009 Van Cliburn International Piano Competition.
