“Their command of the score is absolute… impressively cohesive.” The New York Times on Doppelganger, Part II

“One of the best quartets before the public today” (The Washington Post), the Danish returns with the third concert in its Doppelgänger Project, pairing Schubert’s “Rosamunde” Quartet with a newly commissioned work by Icelandic composer Anna Thorvaldsdóttir. One of the most original voices of her generation, Thorvaldsdóttir wields a “seemingly boundless textural imagination” (The New York Times) to create captivating musical landscapes at once grand and personal.

Made possible by gifts to the A&L Commission of New Work Endowment Fund
