The legendary Takács Quartet, heard most recently at Bing in its brilliant interpretation of Bartók’s complete quartets, shares the stage with the superlative pianist Garrick Ohlsson for an inspiring afternoon of chamber music. Ohlsson’s interpretive and technical powers have been lauded since he won the 1970 Chopin International Piano Competition. He will join the much-honored quartet—which has won many top awards for its prime recordings of Beethoven, Brahms, and Bartók—to perform Elgar's Piano Quintet.
