Folk Renaissance II
Traditional Danish folk tunes
Hans Abrahamsen: Quartet No. 1 (“Ten Preludes”)
Beethoven: String Quartet No. 7 in F Major, Op. 59, No. 1
Danish String Quartet (Frederik Øland, violin; Rune Tonsgaard Sørensen, violin; Asbjørn Nørgaard, viola; Fredrik Schøyen Sjölin, cello)
After their stirring Da Camera debut in 2015, the Danish Quartet returns with traditional Nordic folk music, Quartet No. 1 by Denmark’s greatest living composer — Hans Abrahamsen — and Beethoven’s sweeping, powerful Quartet in F Major, Op. 59. With their technical and interpretive talents matched by an infectious joy for music-making and “rampaging energy” (The New Yorker), the quartet is in demand worldwide.
“A concert that was as comprehensively rewarding as any chamber-music performance in recent memory… Do not lose track of this group: Even by today’s high standards, it offers something very special.” — The Boston Globe
