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

The program, conceived by Takács first violinist Edward Dusinberre, will feature Hoffman reading three scenes from Philip Roth's novel Everyman, interspersed with works by Arvo Pärt (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 Takács will then play the famous Schubert string quartet inspired by the poem.

This concert, one of four given by the Takács 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.
