    The year 2014 marks the 75th anniversary of the outbreak of World War II. The Daedalus will perform works by four composers forced into various forms of exile due to the cultural policies of the Third Reich. From those who were arrested and never completed the journey to exile, to those who spent the war far from home, and those who experienced internal exile by remaining within a state to which they were vocally opposed, the effect on the music produced is profound.

    "An exceptionally refined young ensemble with a translucent sound."
    — The New Yorker

    “One can’t quite call Schulhoff’s Five Pieces for String Quartet delightful. The miniatures playing off the national dances of five European countries are simply too dark, too maniacal for such a quaint label. And yet it’s hard to think of another word, so vital and zesty were the performances…” — Zachary Lewis, Cleveland Plain Dealer

    Additional residency activities and related community events will include guest speakers, a Thursday Humanities Group program and a Friday morning concert preview at Whitney Senior Center, visits to local schools, a Free Family Concert, Saturday, February 1, at 10:30am with a special performance b the Amahoro dancers, and a display of selections from the Hands Across the World “Free at Last: Journey of Hope” art exhibit.

    This project is supported by a National Endowment for the Arts grant and the Fund for the Arts of the Central Minnesota Community Foundation. This organization is funded, in part, by the voters of Minnesota through a grant from the Central Minnesota Arts Board, thanks to a legislative appropriation from the arts and cultural heritage fund. Additional funding comes from United Arts.
