About This Performance

Note: This concert replaces the Daedalus Quartet’s originally scheduled program w/ Romie de Guise-Langlois. 

Following one of Beethoven’s earliest works for strings (long viewed as a testing ground for his Op. 18 string quartets), members of the Daedalus Quartet will join pianist Charles Abramovic for a performance of Dvořák’s second piano quartet. From the first bold statement of the strings in octaves to the rousing final notes, this work is filled with the joy, excitement, depth of feeling, and distinctive character that can only be attributed to this Czech master.

Beethoven: String Trio in G Major, Op. 9, No. 1
Dvořák: Piano Quartet in E-flat Major, Op. 87
