About the Event

At this point, the Takács String Quartet are part of the PUC family, making their 20th appearance on the series this season. But this year will be different – not only because of their recently-announced new second violinist Harumi Rhodes (daughter of Samuel Rhodes of the Juilliard Quartet), but also because they’ll be bringing along the magnificent pianist Marc-André Hamelin to play the scales off of Schubert’s “Trout” Quintet. “Why the ‘Trout’?” you may ask. Well first, because it’s a shining jewel in the crown of the chamber music repertoire, but also because it came out on top of our audience survey of “favorite pieces of chamber music.” You asked for it, friends, and now you’ve got it!



Schubert’s “Trout” Quintet was first performed on the series in 1909 by the Kneisel String Quartet and friends, and has remained a PUC favorite for over a century as one of the most popular selections in our “favorite pieces of chamber music” audience survey.
