MERYL STREEP, TAKÁCS QUARTET & PHILIP ROTH 09.19.2014

Takács Gramophone Hall of Fame

 

THE TAKÁCS QUARTET will be performing a special, one time only concert with MERYL STREEP at Princeton University on September 19, 2014.

The program was conceived by Edward Dusinberre, the first violinist of the Takács, in close collaboration with PHILIP ROTH, after Ed read the Roth novel Everyman. Ed calls it "an exploration of the theme of death; Roth's powerful meditation Everyman, placing Schubert's "Death and the Maiden" in an unusual and inspiring context."

Meryl Streep will read passages from Everyman and the Takács will perform Schubert's "Death and the Maiden" and also music by Arvo Part.
