Winner of last year’s Gramophone Award in the Chamber Music category, the Takács Quartet returns to Berkeley with two recitals this season. The hidden gem on the ensemble’s first 2022–23 program is Fanny Mendelssohn Hensel’s sole quartet of 1834, a work unperformed in its lifetime and forgotten until the score was discovered in the 1980s. This composition is bookended by Haydn’s final quartet and the first of Beethoven’s late-period quartets.  The ensemble performs in Berkeley again on January 29, 2023.
