Among today’s many exceptional chamber music groups, the Grammy-nominated Danish String Quartet continuously asserts its preeminence. The quartet’s playing reflects impeccable musicianship, sophisticated artistry, exquisite clarity, and, above all, expressivity that is inseparably bound to the music, from Haydn to Shostakovich to contemporary scores. Performances bring a rare musical spontaneity, giving audiences the sense of hearing treasured canon repertoire as if for the first time and exuding a palpable joy in music-making that have made them one of the most in-demand chamber groups in the world today. The recipient of many awards and significant appointments, including Musical America’s 2020 Ensemble of the Year, the quartet was named BBC Radio 3 New Generation Artists and appointed to The Bowers Program, a prestigious residency and training program at Chamber Music Society of Lincoln Center.
