About the Artist

The Takács String Quartet opened our virtual 2020-2021 season with a Watch Party that constituted their 21st appearance on our series. As a special holiday treat, we are delighted to be able to relive their incredible performance, recorded live from Boulder, Colorado. The concert stream will remain available for free on-demand viewing from Sunday, December 13 through Sunday, December 20, 2020. A link will be posted on this page. Beloved Emeritus Professor Scott Burnham translated his popular Pre-Concert Talk to the virtual world, illuminating the program in a brief video that you can watch here

As part of the Watch Party, the ensemble engaged with viewers in a live Q&A facilitated by Princeton University Concerts Director Marna Seltzer. You can watch a replay of the discussion, which will remain available on our YouTube page. 


During these challenging times, we intend to continue engagement with great music-making; support the outstanding artists who appear with us; and ensure that Princeton University Concerts will emerge from the COVID-19 outbreak in a secure position—able to gather with all of you when it is again safe to do so. Thank you for contributing as generously as you can when watching these events. Every little bit helps.
