17.10.2015 Season Gala: Philip Roth's Everyman Featuring Meryl Streep And Takács Quartet

screen535.jpg
Join actor Meryl Streep and the Takács Quartet for an evening of readings and chamber music. Meryl Streep reads from Phillip Roth’s novel Everyman and the Takács Quartet plays excerpts from Schubert’s “Death and the Maiden,” the Elegy from Shostakovich’s String Quartet No. 2, Arvo Pärt’s Psalom, and the Passacaglia from Britten’s String Quartet No. 3.

One of the greatest film actresses of all time, Meryl Streep, with 19 Academy Award nominations (more than any other actor, male or female) and countless awards and recognitions, is one of the three living actors who has won the Oscar three times.

Streep began her career on the New York stage in the late 1960s and appeared in several Broadway productions, and then broke into film in the 1970s with a role in the drama Julia (1977). The next year she appeared in The Deer Hunter opposite Robert De Niro and Christopher Walken, for which she earned her first Academy Award nomination for Best Supporting Actress. That same year, she won her first Primetime Emmy for her role in the film Holocaust. In 1979, her portrayal of a woman who abandons her family only to come back and fight for custody of her son in Kramer vs. Kramer brought Streep her first Academy Award win for Best Supporting Actress. When, in February, 2003, Meryl Streep was Oscar-nominated for her performance in Adaptation, she overtook Katherine Hepburn to become the most successful actress in Hollywood history. She was awarded the AFI Life Achievement Award in 2004 and the Kennedy Center Honor in 2011 for her contribution to American culture through performing arts, the youngest actor in each award's history. President Barack Obama awarded her the 2010 National Medal of Arts and in 2014 the Presidential Medal of Freedom.

Recognized as one of the world's great ensembles, the Takács Quartet plays with a unique blend of drama, warmth, and humour, combining four distinct musical personalities to bring fresh insights to the string quartet repertoire. In 2014, the Takács was the first string quartet to win the Wigmore Hall Medal recognizing major international artists who have a strong association with the Hall. In 2012, Gramophone announced that the Takács was the only string quartet to be inducted into its first Hall of Fame. The ensemble also won the 2011 Award for Chamber Music and Song presented by the Royal Philharmonic Society in London. Based in Boulder at the University of Colorado, the members of the Takács Quartet are Christoffersen Faculty Fellows at the University of Colorado Boulder. They are also Visiting Fellows at the Guildhall School of Music and Drama, London.

Concert tickets and pre-concert gala dinner tickets are sold out.
