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.
