The group’s irresistible blend of virtuosic technique and engaging personality offers a window into the Hungarian quartet tradition. For its 22nd visit since 1982, the ensemble will play later music by Haydn, an earlier Shostakovich quartet (after last season’s No 11), and a mature Brahms work from 1873.
