- Nordic folk music
In this encore engagement, the versatile members of the Danish String Quartet bring the musical flavors of their homeland, weaving Nordic folklore into the sound world of classical music. The string quartet sound further enhances the depth of feelings invoked by the sublime melodies and harmonies in sophisticated arrangements of traditional Faroese ballads, waltzes, and Nordic folk tunes.
A classical string quartet with a passion for Nordic folk music, the Danish String Quartet spends most of its time playing music by masters such as Beethoven and Bartók but also delved into the roots of its local music tradition—Nordic folk music. The quartet's inaugural folk album, Wood Works (2014), was received to great acclaim, and in 2017, the quartet's second folk music album, Last Leaf, was named by NPR Music as the Best Classical Alum of 2017.
Tickets are $35.
