Daedalus QuartetThe Complete Beethoven Quartets

September 10, 2017  ·  Harold Prince Theatre


In a Philadelphia first, the Daedalus Quartet, Penn’s quartet-in-residence, performs the 16 masterpieces that make up Beethoven’s quartet cycle, all in a single season. The cycle demonstrates a range of artistic innovation, emotional expression and sheer craftsmanship that remains unparalleled in music today. Join us for an exploration of the personal odyssey of Beethoven, the musician and the man: his genius, his suffering, his joy, his sense of humor, his inner child.

Quartet no. 16 in F major, Op. 135
Quartet no. 9 in C major, Op. 59 no. 3
