Danish String Quartet

Doppelgänger: Schubert & Thorvaldsdottir
Danish String Quartet
Describing themselves as "relatively bearded," the Danish String Quartet, featuring three Danes and a Norwegian cellist, is a truly Scandinavian effort. The four combine expressivity and joy of playing with a rarely heard musical spontaneity, so that one might think one is hearing even familiar melodies for the first time. This makes them an ensemble in demand worldwide. In 2018, the quartet received a GRAMMY- nomination for its Beethoven/Bach recording on the renowned ECM label.

Since its debut in 2002, the quartet has also cultivated its repertoire of works by Scandinavian composers and enjoys combining classical literature with specially arranged Nordic folk music. For their project "Doppelgänger", for example, they commissioned the Icelandic composer Anna Thorvaldsdottir to compose a new work in the context of Franz Schubert's famous Rosamunde Quartet.
