Overview

Friday April 22, 2022 @ 8:00 pm

Time after time, the Grammy Award-nominated Danish String Quartet receives critical acclaim for their powerful performances. As “one of the best quartets before the public today” (The Washington Post), the group brings a unique expressivity to the music, whether it be Haydn, Shostakovich, or a contemporary score. In this performance, they play works by Britten and Schubert as well as a specially curated suite of dances by John Adams, Charpentier, and Felix Blumenfeld.
