Takacs Quartet with Marc-Andre Hamelin
In May, 2012, Gramophone Magazine announced that the Takács Quartet was the only string quartet to be inducted into its first Hall of Fame. Combined with the talent and genius of Marc-Andre Hamelin, who recently received a lifetime achievement prize by the German Record Critic’s Award, this is a concert not to be missed.
U.S. stock markets finished higher Friday, as Donald Trump took the oath of office to become the nation's 45th president, delivering an inaugural address repeating protectionist policies he promised throughout his campaign. Stocks rallied immediately following Trump's election with indexes hitting records as markets spurred by prospects of corporate tax cuts, deregulation, and infrastructure spending, all expected to accelerate economic growth. However advances have stalled recently as investors look for proof that these policy actions will result in better company earnings.
How would you rate President Trump's Inaugural Speech on Friday?
