The Danish String Quartet, one of the strongest classical ensembles to come out of Denmark, is playing in London 12 October.
The Danish String Quartet had its debut in 2002 and quickly established itself as the most promising news in the classical music world in Denmark. The young ensemble is internationally recognized for its dedicated and capturing style which was once described in New York Times as “a smorgasbord of strings, served with youthful vigor and sense-jolting spices.”
The Danish String Quartet has won a number of awards, among those The First Prize in the Eleventh London International String Quartet Competition 2009. The jury was thoroughly convinced of the quartet’s qualities and awarded the ensemble four additional prizes.
This year in November they will receive Carl Nielsen og Anne-Marie Carl Nielsens Hæderspris, a great honour and tribute to the quartet that has been praised for its interpretations of Nielsen’s chamber music.
The concert, which is a charity concert for The Danish Church, will be their only concert in London this autumn.
The Danish String Quartet is Frederik Øland (violin), Rune Tonsgaard Sørensen (violin), Asbjørn Nørgaard (viola) and Fredrik Sjölin (cello).
