“Do not lose track of this group. Even by today’s high standards, it offers something very special.” The Boston Globe

“The quartet’s crystalline sound conjures a magical atmosphere and nods to the strident tone of Nordic fiddle playing.” The Strad (U.K.)

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).

Last Leaf: A Nordic Folk Program
Tue, Feb 12
In this sublime foray into the rich Nordic music tradition, the Danish explore folk treasures in what they call “a nice little niche somewhere between traditional folk and classical music.”
