Comprised of fierce friends who have been playing together since childhood, the Danish String Quartet has become the darling of A&L’s program for its profound and skillful interpretations of classical masters. The Nordic lads who possess “warmth, wit, a beautiful tone and technical prowess second to none” (NPR) will once again dazzle Santa Barbara with the same irresistible energy that thrills audiences worldwide with two programs: a rousing evening of traditional music from their homeland and a classical evening that highlights their “flawless intonation, infectious energy and masterly poise” (Huffington Post).
Program – Wed, Feb, 13
Haydn: String Quartet in C Major, op. 20, no. 2
Abrahamsen: String Quartet No. 1 (“10 Preludes”)
Nielsen: String Quartet No. 3, op. 14
“Do not lose track of this group. Even by today’s high standards, it offers something very special.” The Boston Globe
“A truly fab four in Santa Barbara… leave it to these Danes to show Haydn’s surprise harmonies.” – Mark Swed, Los Angeles Times
