Description

Two brilliant ensembles fill the stage on opening night: the five young, “game-changing” virtuosos of Windsync (Lexington Herald-Leader), and the “insightful and vibrant” Daedalus Quartet (NY Times). Windsync engages audiences in new ways, performing from memory and showcasing their own arrangements of repertoire from around the world, while the Daedalus Quartet brings its “rockets of blistering virtuosity” (Washington Post) back to the festival. They join together for Martinu’s joyous Nonet, and Julia Bruskin performs with the Daedalus in Franz Schubert’s transcendent String Quintet in C Major.
