Daedalus Quartet

The Daedalus Quartet offered the most arresting performance of the evening, of Molto Adagio (1938), an early work by George Perle (1915-2009). At 23 years old, Perle was already crafting his Berg-inspired and highly individual approach to harmony. The ensemble finessed the piece's inexorable, gradually unfolding chromatic lines with poise and sumptuous tone. If this kind of playing is an example of what Bridge may have in store for us over the next 30 years, the future looks bright indeed.
