CLASSICAL | Takács Quartet 

Among all the classical music mediums, the string quartet possesses a singular combination of intimacy and immediacy that's rare in other forms. As part of the Eastman-Ranlet Series, the storied Takács Quartet takes to the stage Sunday at Kilbourn Hall to perform string quartets by two of the greatest melodists in compositional history: Mozart, with his String Quartet No. 21, and Mendelssohn, with String Quartet No. 6. But perhaps most compelling here is Bartók's darkly beautiful and enigmatic String Quartet No. 1. As a whole, the program is an excellent blend of sonic comfort and dramatic tension.

The Takács Quartet will perform on Sunday, February 18, at Eastman School of Music's Kilbourn Hall, 26 Gibbs Street. 3 p.m. $19-$36. 274-3000; eastmantheatre.org; takacsquartet.com.
