“Relatively beardy” is how the Danish String Quartet describe themselves, and indeed with three Danes and a Norwegian cellist, they are as Scandinavian as they come. Together, the four musicians encapsulate expressiveness and a love of playing, combined with a rarely heard musical spontaneity – enough to make you think that you are somehow hearing well-known melodies for the first time. This talent has made them much in demand the world over. In 2018, the quartet received a Grammy nomination for its Beethoven/Bach recording on the renowned ECM label. Since making their debut in 2002, the ensemble has been adding works by Scandinavian composers to their repertoire and blithely combining classical literature with their own arrangements of Nordic folk music. For their “Doppelgänger” project for example, they brought in Icelandic composer Anna Thorvaldsdottir to pen a new work based on Franz Schubert’s famous Rosamunde Quartet.
