Please join us in the Arthur Ross Gallery for an evening-length program performed by the Daedalus Quartet centered on Bartok’s first quartet, featuring music of Erwin Schulhoff, Trevor Weston, Florence Price, William Grant Still, and Eleanor Alberga.
The Daedalus Quartet has served as the University of Pennsylvania's resident string quartet since 2006. Internationally acclaimed as one of the foremost chamber ensembles performing today, the Daedalus Quartet has performed in many of the world's leading musical venues; in the United States and Canada these include Carnegie Hall, Lincoln Center (Great Performances series), the Library of Congress, the Corcoran Gallery in Washington, D.C., and Boston's Gardner Museum, as well as on major series in Montreal, Toronto, Calgary, Winnipeg, and Vancouver. Abroad, the ensemble has been heard in such famed locations as teh Musikverein in Vienna, the Mozarteum in Salzburg, the Concertgebouw in Amsterdam, the Cité de la Musique in Paris, and in leading venues in Japan. While at Penn, the Daedalus has also achieved renown for its investigations of the links between music and other fields of human endeavor, including neuroscience, literature, theater, and social dynamics. In addition to working closely with student performers and composers, the quartet also brings live music to the classroom at Penn, performing the great works of the repertoire and discussing their relevance to the modern mind.
