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 Daedalus Quartet has impressed critics and listeners alike with the security, technical finish, interpretive unity, and sheer gusto of its performances. The New York Times has praised the Daedalus Quartets insightful and vibrant Haydn, the impressive intensity of their Beethoven, their luminous Berg, and the riveting focus of their Dutilleux. The Washington Post in turn has acclaimed their performance of Mendelssohn for its rockets of blistering virtuosity, while the Houston Chronicle has described the silvery beauty of their Schubert and the magic that hushed the audience when they played Ravel, the Boston Globe the finesse and fury of their Shostakovich, the Toronto Globe and Mail the thrilling revelation of their Hindemith, and the Cincinnati Enquirer the tremendous emotional power of their Brahms.
With guest Minnesota stars Pitnarry Shin (Minnesota Orchestra cellist) and award-winning actor Linda Kelsey as narrator, they will present a program of music and literary texts associated with Beethovens Kreutzer Sonata.
