Daedalus Quartet The Complete Beethoven Quartets

April 13, 2018  ·  Kislak Center of Van Pelt Library


This event takes place in the Orrery Pavilion at the Kislak Center of Van Pelt Library at 3420 Walnut Street.

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. 2 in G major, Op. 18 no. 2
Quartet no. 11 in F minor, "Serioso," Op. 95
Quartet no. 13 in Bb major, with Beethoven's rewritten finale

This performance is part of the Complete Beethoven Quartets series, featuring eight performances across Penn's campus throughout our 17/18 season. View the whole series >>
