Takács Quartet

The Takács Quartet, now entering its forty-third season, is renowned for the vitality of its interpretations. The only string quartet to be inducted into Gramophone’s Hall of Fame, and the first-ever string quartet to win the Wigmore Hall Medal, the Takács Quartet is widely recognized as one of the world’s great ensembles.

Arguably the greatest string quartet in the world.
— The Guardian
