Daedalus Quartet comes to Rexburg

The Daedalus Quartet filled the Barrus Concert Hall with the music of Schubert, Mozart and Beethoven on Feb. 24. Students with a strong background in music and those with a deep appreciation for it attended the program, which started at 7:30 p.m.

The quartet performed “Quartettsatz” by Schubert, “String Quartet, K. 590” by Mozart and “String Quartet, Op. 59, No. 1” by Beethoven. Each piece had several movements, which allowed the audience members to see a variety of musical techniques.

“It was my first time coming to a concert like this, and I would definitely come again,” said Mari Armendariz, a freshman studying communication. “I enjoyed being able to see the quartet’s passion for music through their playing.”

Alieta Pinguelo, a freshman studying biology, enjoyed being able to see the quartet’s passion for music.

“The players were really expressive, and it was really fun to watch them,”  Pinguelo said. “The piece by Mozart was my favorite because of all the different movements it had and how they all connected to each other.”

Amanda Nielsen, a sophomore studying music education, found unique aspects of the program that she liked.

“I’ve been to a lot of things like this, but a lot of it was Broadway, so you can’t really compare them,” Nielsen said. “It was amazing to see the quartet’s perfection and in that, having something to work towards. It was really inspiring.”

Nielson said her favorite piece was Beethoven’s.

“I liked the slow movement’s melody the best,” Nielsen said. “It just took my breath away when the notes swelled with passion. It was beautiful. I just really enjoyed the music overall. The dynamics of the pieces were really great.”

Pinguelo expressed her appreciation for the concert and said she would come to a concert like this again.

“I would come again because it’s nice to have something different to do,” Pinguelo said. “It’s good to be able to get a taste for the arts.”
