Chamber Music Society of Lincoln Center presents

Danish String Quartet

The Danish String Quartet performs great quartets of the chamber music repertoire in this newly-recorded concert from Copenhagen.

Bach “Contrapunctus XIV: Fuga a 3 Soggetti” from The Art of Fugue for String Quartet (Before 1742, rev. c. 1745 and 1748-49)
Webern Langsamer Satz for String Quartet (1905)
Bach Vor deinen Thron tret ich hiermit for String Quartet, BWV 668 (1750)
Mozart Quartet in E-flat major for Strings, K. 428 (1783)

Embodying the quintessential elements of a chamber music ensemble of the highest caliber, the Danish String Quartet has established a reputation for its integrated sound and technical and interpretive talents matched by an infectious joy for music-making and “rampaging energy” (The New Yorker). Since making their debut in 2002 at the Copenhagen Festival, the musical friends have demonstrated a passion for Scandinavian composers, who they frequently incorporate into adventurous contemporary programs, while also giving skilled and profound interpretations of the classical masters. The New York Times selected the quartet’s concerts as highlights of 2012 and 2015, praising “one of the most powerful renditions of Beethoven’s Opus 132 String Quartet that I’ve heard live or on a recording,” and “the adventurous young members of the Danish String Quartet play almost everything excitingly.”

Live Stream Available Thursday, November 19 at 7:30pm and will remain on demand through December 3, 2020.
