Program Notes

Praised as “insightful and vibrant” (The New York Times) and “one of the freshest and most exciting” (The New Yorker), the Daedalus Quartet returns to Treetops CMS for a second collaboration with Artistic Director Oskar Espina Ruiz, clarinet. “Mr. Espina Ruiz is a phenomenal clarinetist, a subtle and discreet virtuoso whose dynamic control matched that of the string quartet.” (CVNC)

The program starts with Beethoven’s most popular quartet in the Opus 18 set. The recipient of a 2009 Guggenheim Fellowship and a 2008 “Academy Award” from the American Academy of Arts and Letters, Anna Weesner’s The Space Between for string quartet adds a new dimension to the program.
