Danish String Quartet
“They could be grounded in their tone or mystical. They allowed time to stand still, and they could assume the pose of excitingly aggressive rockers. They did it all,” says The Los Angeles Times of the Danish String Quartet. The Quartet continues the 2022 Robert Mann Chamber Series with an unusual and delightful choice: a collection of folk music, a rare treat to experience with a classical string ensemble. The program begins with Purcell’s pure Chaconne and ends, unforgettably, with Schubert’s Quartet in G Major. “In his last and greatest string quartet Schubert seems to have set out, like Mahler, to contain the world” (Gramophone).
