Danish String Quartet
The accomplished Danish String Quartet commands the great works of quartet literature with exceptional energy and an uncommonly fresh approach. Hailed for its impeccable technique, intonation, and balance, the quartet brings dynamic new understanding to Bartók’s Quartet No. 1 and Beethoven’s Quartet No. 7 on its Williams Center debut. Selections from its 2013 release Wood Works—centuries-old Scandinavian folk tunes, arranged for string quartet—will astonish and gratify. “Theirs is playing of unusual, and unusually effective, liberty. When at their best, their tone throbs with joy” (The New York Times).
