Daedalus Quartet

April 17 @ 7:30 pm - 9:30 pm


Praised by The New Yorker as “a fresh and vital young participant in what is a golden age of American string quartets,” the Daedalus Quartet has established itself as a leader among the new generation of string ensembles. Since winning the top prize in the Banff International String Quartet Competition in 2001, the quartet has impressed critics and audiences with the security, technical finish, interpretive unity, and sheer gusto of its performances. The group has performed in many of the world’s leading musical venues, including Carnegie Hall, Lincoln Center, the Library of Congress, and in international locations such as the Musikverein in Vienna, the Mozarteum in Salzburg, the Concertgebouw in Amsterdam, and the Cité de la Musique in Paris. The program includes “Harp” Quartet (Op. 74) from Beethoven’s middle period, String Quartet Op. 1, No. 3 by Haydn, and Leoš Janá cek’s String Quartet No. 1, “Kreutzer Sonata” (inspired by Tolstoy’s novella The Kreutzer Sonata, which was inspired by Beethoven’s Violin Sonata No. 9).
