Danish String Quartet
Sunday Afternoon Concert
October 15, 2017 at 3:00 p.m.
Williams Theatre, Tulsa PAC
2:15 p.m. Pre-concert lecture by Daniel Arthurs, TU
“Yes, playing string quartets is our job, and yes it is hard work, but we mostly do it for pleasure, like we always did.”
In 2015, The Danish String Quartet wowed audiences with two sold-out concerts! Now, the Danes are ready for their triumphant return to Tulsa!
The Quartet likes to describe itself as “simply your friendly neighborhood string quartet with above average amounts of beard.” Members of the ensemble met as young boys at summer camp, and over the last 10 years the Danish String Quartet has become “one of the best quartets before the public today” (Washington Post).
The high technical and musical quality, the joy of playing, the powerful impact the quartet makes on stage, and the fresh approach to familiar repertoire have become trademarks for the Danish String Quartet.
Haydn: Quartet in C Major, Op. 20, No. 2
Schnittke: Quartet No. 3
Beethoven: Quartet in F Major, Op. 59, No. 1, “Razumovsky”

Join us at 2:15 p.m. for a pre-concert lecture
with Prof. Daniel Arthurs from the University of Tulsa.
The Father, the Son, and an Ironist of the String Quartet Come learn how the father of the classical string quartet, Joseph Haydn, rubbed off on his most famous pupil, Beethoven. Professor of music Daniel Arthurs will take listeners through Haydn’s use of the “Sensitive Style,” and Beethoven’s transformation of that style through his dramatic approach to musical form. Then, Prof. Arthurs explores the post-modernist third quartet of Schnittke, who’s affinity for musical pastiche might best be tongue-twistingly described as a classical polystyle in spite of itself.
