FEATURING


Danish String Quartet

“That mixture of casualness and control that comes out when they perform makes them the quartet I would most want to hear play just about anything. Chords all have a diamond edge, tunes pour like molten silver, staccato passages skip like stones across a lake.” — Justin Davidson, New York Magazine

WHILE INSIDE THE CHURCH, ALL ATTENDEES MUST WEAR A PROPERLY FITTING MASK. AUDIENCE MEMBERS ARE NO LONGER REQUIRED TO SHOW PROOF OF VACCINATION.

ABOUT THE PERFORMANCE
Danish String Quartet

The long-awaited return of the charismatic Danish String Quartet promises to be a true highlight of the 2022-23 season. In their own words, “We are three Danes and one Norwegian cellist, making this a truly Scandinavian endeavor. The three of us, the Danes, met very early in our lives in the Danish countryside, and none of us have any memory of our lives without the string quartet. In 2008 Norwegian cellist Fredrik joined in. He looked like a character from Game of Thrones, and we thought he was a perfect match.”

The Danish Quartet will bring their perfectly balanced personal and musical rapport to beloved works by Mozart, Britten, and Schubert.
