Music From Exile

​Rosalyn and Irwin Engelman Recital Hall


“Passionate and insightful.” – The New York Times
"An exceptionally refined young ensemble with a translucent sound." — The New Yorker

Renowned Israeli pianist Renana Gutman joins the award-winning Daedalus Quartet to present a sonic exploration of the human response to repression and exile. The program with the defiantly joyful third string quartet of Viktor Ullman, written in Theresienstadt concentration camp in 1943, prior to the Austrian-born composer’s murder at Auschwitz. This is followed by Babel, a New York premiere string quartet by the composer Gabriel Bolaños, whose family fled Nicaragua in the 1990s. In this piece, Bolaños uses the sound of string instruments to explore the nature and variety of human languages, revealing both cultural differences and our fundamental similarity. The program closes with Mieczyslaw Weinberg’s monumental piano quintet, composed in Moscow after his escape from the Nazi invasion of Poland. It celebrates the centenary of this rarely programmed artist’s birth.

Tickets: $36 - $16
