Grammy Award-winning Takács Quartet opens our virtual Festival with their “chamber music playing of overwhelming intensity” (The Guardian), recorded recently at the beloved Chautauqua Auditorium. Music Director Peter Oundjian introduces this Boulder-based ensemble, including Takács’ newest member, Emmy Award-winning violist Richard O’Neill.
All virtual performances are pre-recorded and will be available on demand for a period of time after the virtual festival concludes. We are pleased to present these performances for free as a sign of gratitude to donors, subscribers, ticket buyers, and the community.
