Two shows into its 2016-17 season, the Mill Valley Chamber Music Society comes back with its first show of 2017 as the Daedalus Quartet, hailed by the New Yorker as “a fresh and vital young participant in what is a golden age of American string quartets,” comes to Mill Valley on Feb. 26.

The non-profit, all-volunteer organization founded in 1973 to present exceptional classical musicians in Mill Valley at affordable ticket prices has also unveiled a new wrinkle: offering free admission for young adults 18-years old and under (audiences members 15 years old and under must be accompanied by an adult).

The Daedalus Quartet, which includes Min-Young Kim and Matilda Kaul, violin; Jessica Thompson, viola and Thomas Kraines, cello, won the top prize in the Banff International String Quartet Competition in 2001, impressing critics and listeners alike with the security, technical finish, interpretive unity, and sheer gusto of its performances. The New York Times has praised the Daedalus Quartet’s “insightful and vibrant” Haydn, the “impressive intensity” of their Beethoven, their “luminous” Berg, and the “riveting focus” of their Dutilleux. 
The Daedalus Quartet concert program will include Haydn, Quartet, op. 1, # 3, Bartok, S.Q. # 3 and Beethoven, Quartet in C# minor, op. 131.
