THE POETRY OF BEETHOVEN:
* Quartet no. 1 in F major, Op 18 no 1
* Quartet no. 15 in A minor, Op 132
* Readings of poetic responses to Beethoven's Opus 132

T.S. Eliot, Aldous Huxley, Milan Kundera and many other writers found inspiration in Beethoven’s music, particularly his late quartets. In this special collaboration with the Kelly Writers House, the Daedalus Quartet will perform Quartet no. 1 in F major, Opus 18 no 1, which is inspired in part by Shakespeare’s Romeo and Juliet, and Quartet no. 15 in A minor, Opus. 132.

Philadelphia poets THOMAS DEVANEY, DAVY KNITTLE (GR’20), MARY OSUNLANA (C’20) and YOLANDA WISHER will complete the performance with their own responses to Opus 132.

Part of the Complete Beethoven Quartet series:
In a Philadelphia first, The Daedalus Quartet, Penn’s quartet-in-residence, performs the 16 masterpieces that make up Beethoven’s quartet cycle, all in a single season. The cycle demonstrates a range of artistic innovation, emotional expression and sheer craftsmanship that remains unparalleled in music today. Join us for an exploration of the personal odyssey of Beethoven, the musician and the man: his genius, his suffering, his joy, his sense of humor, his inner child.
