The members of the Quartet are Associate Artists at the South Bank Centre, and in Madrid. The Takács is a Visiting Quartet at the Guildhall School of Music and Drama, London. At Carnegie Hall a series of three concerts will feature the Schumann Quartets, their latest recording.
The Quartet's award-winning recordings include the Late Beethoven Quartets (2005 Disc of the Year and Chamber Award from BBC Music Magazine, and a Gramophone Award), Brahms' Quartets Op. 51 and Op. 67. The complete Haydn "Apponyi" Quartets, Op. 71 and 74, will be released in early 2011. The Takács Quartet was formed in 1975 at the Franz Liszt Academy in Budapest by Gabor Takács-Nagy, Károly Schranz, Gabor Ormai and András Fejer, while all four were students. The Quartet made its North American debut tour in 1982. Violinist Edward Dusinberre joined the Quartet in 1993 and violist Roger Tapping in 1995.
