About This Performance
“A fresh and vital participant in what is a golden age of American string quartets” (The New Yorker), the exceptionally-refined Daedalus–currently Quartet-in-Residence at the University of Pennsylvania–excels at interpreting the music of our time. Pianist Marcantonio Barone also “brings instant charisma to new, challenging works” (Philadelphia Inquirer) and, along with the “intelligent and communicative” (New York Times) baritone Randall Scarlata, was a driving force in constructing this program of premieres by four gifted contemporary composers.
