The Danish String Quartet, Musical America’s 2020 Ensemble of the Year, takes to the Nocturne stage in the first of three Denver-area performances. Classically trained with a devoted international following, the Danish (three Danes and one Norwegian) will perform Nordic folk tunes from their highly acclaimed albums, "Last Leaf" and "Wood Works." Whether the Danish String Quartet is performing Beethoven or folk songs, they are known for their powerful performances, intense musicality and "rock star" vibe!
Tickets are $75 each, and include a four-course Scandinavian-themed dinner. Cash bar. Optional wine pairings will be available for purchase the night of the event. A limited number of $30 tickets are available (bar seating, à la carte menu).
About the Quartet: The three Danish members of the quartet met as children at a music summer camp where they played soccer and made music together. As teenagers, they began studying classical chamber music under Tim Frederiksen of Copenhagen’s Royal Danish Academy of Music. In 2008, the three Danes were joined by Norwegian cellist Fredrik Schøyen Sjölin. They were a serious quartet by the ages of 15 and 16.
Today, the GRAMMY©-nominated Danish String Quartet is “one of the best quartets before the public today” (The Washington Post). These modern Vikings delve deeply into works by great masters such as Beethoven and Mozart, while also playing the occasional folk gig as they will on Monday, February 3 when they take the stage at Nocturne Jazz.
