Be among the first to hear this spectacular foursome from Denmark at their Minnesota debut! Though they all are still under the age of thirty, their virtuosity and maturity of interpretation have impressed audiences and critics alike, whether playing the classics, new works, or repertoire by Scandinavian composers.

Saturday evening concert program:
String Quartet No. 1, “10 Preludes for String Quartet” by Danish composer Hans Abrahamsen
String Quartet in A Minor, Op. 13, by Felix Mendelssohn
String Quartet in A minor, Op. 132, by Ludwig van Beethoven

 

“…one of the most powerful performances of Opus 132 I’ve ever heard live or on disc. The musicians, acutely attuned to one another, didn’t appear to be on autopilot for even a millisecond, with every nuance, phrase and gesture beautifully wrought.” — New York Times

“They bring a freshness and energy plus a level of sheer accomplishment that I don’t remember ever hearing in these works.” — Gramophone

Concert Sponsor: 
St. Cloud Ear, Nose & Throat Clinic
