Takacs Quartet remembers Philip Seymour Hoffman collaboration: ‘We were in awe’
February 4, 2014
The Takacs Quartet, the renowned string ensemble based at the CU-Boulder College of Music, offered one of many tributes to actor Philip Seymour Hoffman after the Oscar-winning actor was found dead Sunday.
From a Monday afternoon post on the Takacs Quartet Facebook page:
We were lucky enough to work with Philip Seymour Hoffman once. What was so striking to us during his readings from Philip Roth's Everyman was how daring his choices were: so much dynamic inflection in his voice in the piano/pianissimo range. And a humble, openminded attitude to his work. We were in awe. What a sad day.
