The joy of playing, the powerful impact the quartet makes on stage and the fresh approach to well known repertoire has become a trademark for the Danish String Quartet, qualities that have led to success not only in Denmark but to prestigious venues across the US. “A smorgasbord of strings served with youthful vigour and sense-jolting spices. I can’t imagine a more involving performance.’’ New York Times The concert finishes at approximately 9.15pm
