Danish String Quartet

Danish String Quartet

October 14-15, 2017

 

“…Awe-inspiring performance…the quartet almost makes time stand still…”  – The Scotsman (Edinburgh)

 

Members of the Danish String Quartet met as young boys at summer camp. Combining the “hipster good looks of a rock band” with impeccable technique and stylistic versatility, they have become one of the most compelling quartets playing on the world stage today. The freshness and sophistication of their playing invites listeners to share their infectious joy in music.
