This performance takes place at the Pennovation Center at 3401 Grays Ferry Avenue.
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. 5 in A major, Op. 18 no. 5
Quartet no. 8 in E minor, Op. 59 no. 2
