Performance Dates

  • Fri Oct 15 2021 7:30 PM


Meany Hall – Katharyn Alvord Gerlich Theater

Fierce friends as well as colleagues, the Danish String Quartet is celebrated not only for their integrated sound and impeccable intonation, but for the infectious joy they bring to music making. The quartet, which has been playing together since childhood, returns to the Meany stage with an imaginative program of Purcell as arranged by Britten, a suite of dances by composers spanning continents and centuries, and the quartet’s own unique arrangements of traditional Nordic folk music.


This is one of the best quartets before the public today.
