Composed by: Lawrence Dillon - Chamber Music
String Quartet No. 4: The Infinite Sphere / String Quartet No. 3: Air / String Quartet No. 2: Flight / Daedalus Quartet; What Happened

Insects and Paper Airplanes brings together the second, third and fourth quartets from Lawrence Dillon's Invisible Cities String Quartet Cycle, a set of six quartets Dillon has been working on since 1998. These quartets are full of passionate lyricism, bone-rattling power chords, rustic charm, quiet introspection, rollicking humor, and exhilarating virtuosity. The fact that this seemingly limitless font of ideas comes to us in brilliantly conceived reexaminations of traditional forms makes the accomplishment of Dillon's music all the more remarkable. The three quartets are performed by the superb Daedalus Quartet, with pianist Benjamin Hochman joining members of Daedalus for Dillon's What Happened.
