“They could be grounded in their tone or mystical. They allowed time to stand still, and they could assume the pose of excitingly aggressive rockers. They did it all.”
– Mark Swed, Los Angeles Times

“The power to make you grateful for the very existence of music.”
The New York Times

Longtime friends and virtuosic musicians, these self-described “relatively bearded Scandinavians, sometimes mistaken for Vikings” have been playing as a quartet for more than 20 years. One of today’s most highly-acclaimed and in-demand classical quartets, the Danish is renowned for impeccable musicianship, sophisticated artistry, exquisite clarity of ensemble and, above all, an unmatched ability to play as one. This wide-ranging program combines works from the classical quartet repertoire with medieval Irish melodies and Nordic folk.
