Beethoven: String Quartet No. 14 in C-sharp Minor, Op. 131; & Shostakovich: Piano Quintet in G Minor, Op. 57
The esteemed Takács, one of the world's premier string quartets, returns to Duke Performances.... Their protean rapport is ideal for one of Beethoven's finest chamber music creations, where seven continuous movements flow together to create an extended moment of intricate beauty. Equally exciting is the guest appearance by outstanding pianist Garrick Ohlsson, a Chopin International Piano Competition winner with more than 80 concertos in his repertoire, who joins the Takács to perform Shostakovich's effervescent Piano Quintet in G Minor.
$30, Duke students $5.
