CANCELED - Daedalus Quartet

with Benjamin Hochman

Monday, May 11, 2015, 6pm

Miller Theatre at Columbia University

This event has ended.

This performance has been canceled due to artist illness. Please join us at our next Pop-Up Concert, on June 2.

Bring a friend, grab a drink, and join some of today’s most interesting performers onstage at Miller Theatre on select early evenings.

Acclaimed pianist Benjamin Hochman joins the “fresh and vital” (The New Yorker) Daedalus Quartet for a performance of Mieczysław Weinberg’s stunning Piano Quintet, Opus 18 in F minor. Weinberg fled Poland in 1939, and the Quintet, written shortly after his arrival in Moscow in 1943, was an immediate success. With echoes of his friend Shostakovich’s Piano Quintet, Weinberg’s work traverses a rich range of emotions in its five movements.

Concerts start at 6 p.m. Admission is on a first-come, first-served basis, and doors open at 5:30 p.m.
