The ever-entertaining Takács Quartet was in superb form at the sold out Lobero as they performed in the first week of the Music Academy of the West’s 77th Summer Festival.

The Fab Four – violinists Edward Dusinberre and Harumi Rhodes, cellist András Fejér, and Grammy-winning violist Richard O’Neill, formerly with Camerata Pacifica – are currently the quartet in residence at the Miraflores campus.

Haydn’s “String Quartet in D Minor” kicked off the concert with Ravel’s “String Quartet in F Major” concluding the hugely entertaining show, sandwiching “Flow” by Nokuthula Ngwenyama – a Harvard graduate violist who has played at the White House, the Louvre, and Kennedy Center – expressing the dawn of the universe ending with the Big Bang.

An extraordinary piece….
