Founded in 1975 by three Hungarian students at the Franz Liszt Academy in Budapest (including violinist Gábor Takács-Nagy of whom the ensemble is named after), the quartet has become in a few decades a Major ensemble on the international scene. If the members have changed, and the repertoire has evolved, the exceptional artistic qualities of the quartet remain.
Watch Edward Dusinberre, Karoly Schranz, Geraldine Walther and András Fejér playing quartets by Schubert, Britten and Dvořák live from the Louvre Auditorium Louvre on medici.tv.
