After its acclaimed UMS debut in 2015, the Danish String Quartet returns with a program of Haydn, Beethoven, and Danish composer Hans Abrahamsen.

New Yorker writer Alex Ross said it best about this group: “It was good to encounter the rampaging energy of the Danish Quartet…these shaggy-haired Danes, who look as though they could be manning some inscrutable boutique in deepest Brooklyn, seemed to sing, dance, strut, and glide their way through the music.” Three of the ensemble’s members met as children at a summer camp, playing both music and soccer together. The group debuted at the 2002 Copenhagen Festival, and over the past 15 years have developed into “an exceptional quartet, whatever repertory they play.” (New York Times)

PROGRAM

Haydn String Quartet in C Major, Op. 20, No. 2
