Danish String Quartet

UGA Presents

The exceptional Danish String Quartet will play Haydn on Friday April 19th at 7:30 p.m. at Hodgson Concert Hall. For 20 years, this still young ensemble has made critically acclaimed recordings of standard and new repertoire. Here's how they describe themselves: "We are three Danes and one Norwegian cellist, making this a truly Scandinavian endeavor. Being relatively bearded, we are often compared to the Vikings. However, we are only pillaging the English coastline occasionally." The quartet's program also includes music by Purcell and Shostakovich. They conclude with a group of folk songs like this one that they arranged themselves. For tickets to the Danish String Quartet, visit PAC.UGA.EDU or call the box office at (706) 542-4400.
