Meet The Artists

Listen to two old friends, cellists András Fejér from the Takács Quartet and Rolf Gjelsten from the New Zealand String Quartet, discuss the early days of the Takács, Hungarian influences in their approach to music, and share stories from past meetings.

András is the last original member of Takács, having formed at the Franz Liszt Academy in Budapest in 1975. Within their first few years, the quartet garnered international recognition, winning a slew of prizes and awards. Rolf has had a truly international career, performing extensively in Europe and North America with orchestras and ensembles, before joining the New Zealand String Quartet in 1994.
