Daidalos Percussion Quartet
Ensemble of the Daidalos Percussion Quartet.
Wed, April 05, 2017 8 pm CEST, Concert

On the search for tonal depth and perfection, the »Daidalos Percussion Quartet« not only integrates exotic, less well-known instruments, but is also focusing increasingly on the construction of its own instruments. This is how it impresses its public through a spectacular stage set and a wide range of sound – which can be seen and heard at the ZKM on 5th April 2017.

The Quartet has been working together since November 2014 and was able to achieve its first joint success in February 2015 at the “International Percussion Competition Luxembourg”. The four artists won 1st prize and the “Ady Mootz” prize for the best interpretation of a final compulsory piece. As well as the rhythmic precision and distinct interaction, the tonal diversity and expressivity of the ensemble was decisive for the jury.

Aya Fujita, Vanessa Porter, Richard Gläser and Johannes Werner are all currently studying at the State University of Music and Performing Arts Stuttgart under Prof. Marta Klimasara, Prof. Klaus Dreher, Jürgen Spitschka and Harald Löhle. All four are prize-winners of various national and international music competitions and give concerts as a quartet and in other formations at festivals in Germany and throughout Europe.
