Bio: With his double bass in hand, Cody Takács has a ravenous appetite for innovative ideas, surreal sounds, and engaging experiences, those not commonly encountered in conventional concert halls. His performances can range from silly and satirical to sensual and serious and anything in between or beyond! Alliteration aside, he can be found performing solo, chamber music, orchestral, historically informed, Avant Garde, traditional, and even the occasional pop repertoire. He has performed with various ensembles across Europe including Sinfonia Rotterdam, Holland Symfonie Orkest, Prisma Strijktrio, MAM. Manufaktur für acktuelle Musik, Het Metropole Orkest, stargaze, and the Ensemble of the Lucerne Festival Academy Alumni and has recorded with Oerknal and the Scordatura Ensemble. He is a founding member and Artistic Director of the Hodiernal Quartet, The Hague's new string quartet dedicated to performing works by living composers. As a soloist, Cody has previously performed at the Rotterdam Contemporary Art Fair, DeLink, Carnegie Hall’s Weill Recital Hall, and the Dutch Double Bass Festival. He finds great joy in collaborating with numerous young composers, helping to bring their thoughts, ideas, and imagination to life!  For more information, please visit:
