Philip Seymour Hoffman, the Academy Award-winning film and stage actor, makes his Carnegie Hall debut this fall, appearing in a concert with the Takšcs String Quartet in Zankel Hall.

The program, conceived by Takšcs first violinist Edward Dusinberre, will feature Hoffman reading three scenes from Philip Roth's novel Everyman, interspersed with works by Arvo P‹rt (string quartet arrangements of Psalom, Summa and Fratres) and Philip Glass (the String Quartet No. 2, "Company").

Following intermission, Hoffman will read the Matthias Claudius poem "Death and the Maiden" and the Takšcs will then play the famous Schubert string quartet inspired by the poem.

This concert, one of four given by the Takšcs Quartet at Carnegie this coming season, will take place at 7:30 p.m. on Tuesday, October 23 in Zankel Hall. Information and tickets are available at www.carnegiehall.org.
