Danish String Quartet

April 20 @ 7:30 pm

$10 – $50

The Danish String Quartet is renowned for impeccable musicianship, sophisticated artistry, and an unmatched ability to play as one. Their palpable joy in music-making has helped make them one of today’s most highly acclaimed classical quartets. Their inventive and intriguing repertoire includes selections from Haydn and Shostakovich, as well as critically acclaimed original projects and popular arrangements of Scandinavian folk music.

Program (subject to change):
Purcell Chaconne
Haydn Op. 20, No. 3
Shostakovich No. 7
Selection of Scandinavian folk tunes

Violinists Frederik Øland and Rune Tonsgaard Sørenson and violist Asbjørn Nørgaard met as children at a music summer camp. They were mentored by Tim Frederiksen of Copenhagen’s Royal Danish Academy of Music. In 2008, Norwegian cellist Fredrik Schøyen Sjölin joined the three Danes.

The Quartet was awarded the 2010 NORDMETALL-Ensemble Prize at the Mecklenburg-Vorpommern Festival in Germany, and in 2011 received the Carl Nielsen Prize, the highest cultural honor in Denmark. In 2007, they established the DSQ Festival, which takes place in intimate and informal settings in Copenhagen. In 2016, they inaugurated a concert series, Series of Four, where they both perform and invite colleagues to appear.
