U of L’s Comstock Hall
$25 ($5 students); 3 p.m.
Almost 40 years after their founding in Hungary by the then-young foursome of first violinist Gábor Takács-Nagy, second violinist Károly Schranz, cellist András Fejér, and violist Gabor Ormai, the Takács String Quartet has become a global institution, now based in Boulder, Colo. Schranz and Fejér remain, and first violinist Edward Dusinberre and violist Geraldine Walther (an American) have rounded out the group. They visit U of L for a special performance sponsored by the Chamber Music Society of Louisville (the event is free for CMS subscribers). A pre-concert lecture will be held at 2 p.m. in the campus’ Music Building, room 130. At 3 p.m., they will perform Hayden’s “String Quartet Op. 76 No. 5,” Britten’s “String Quartet No. 2,” and Dvorak’s “String Quartet Op. 96.” Moshing is not suggested. —Peter Berkowitz
