The Daedalus Quartet will be joined by guest Minnesota “stars” Pitnarry Shin (Minnesota Orchestra cellist) and award-winning actor Linda Kelsey as narrator in a program of music and literary texts associated with Beethoven’s Kreutzer Sonata.
Leoš Janáček: String Quartet No. 1 “Kreutzer Sonata” (1923)
Sergei Taneyev: Allegro from String Quartet No. 2, Op. 5
Tchaikovsky: Andante cantabile from String Quartet No. 1, Op. 11
Beethoven: Violin Sonata No. 9 in A major “Kreutzer” (1802-4), arranged anon. (1832) for string quintet
These pieces will be performed together with readings from Leo Tolstoy’s "The Kreutzer Sonata" and Sophia Tolstaya’s "Song Without Words."
The Daedalus Quartet engagement is made possible in part, by a grant from the Central Minnesota Arts Board with funds appropriated by the Minnesota State Legislature from its general fund.
