Antonin Dvorak:Andante appassionato in F major, B. 40aString Quartet No. 13 in G major, Op. 106 (B192)


Takács Quartet (String Quartet)

Dvorák’s mature string quartets are masterly, all brimming with life-enhancing music, and Op 106 is no exception. The Takács Quartet gives superlative accounts of both this and the apt coupling by a young Samuel Coleridge-Taylor.


“Despite both being for string quartet, both from the same year and indeed sharing a great many stylistic features, the Coleridge-Taylor and Dvorák pieces here are still as different as chalk and cheese; youthful energy contrasting with mature retrospection, perhaps. But as a diptych they work perfectly, and the Takács Quartet are equally at home in both.” – Presto Music “The Takács are impressive on this album: every microphrase, every note is considered. Their sound draws you in from the first moment […]. To simultaneously hear the separate parts and the collective so beautifully is a treat indeed.” – Gramophone

“The selection closes with Dvorak’s earlier Andante appassionato – a rejected slow movement from the Quartet in A Minor, Op. 12. It is a reflective close to this exuberant album, and aptly showcases the Takacs Quartet abiding technical assurance and emotional range.” – BBC Music Magazine; Performance 4 STARS, Recording 4 STARS
