Danish String Quartet

The Danish String Quartet has reached incredible heights since its formation in 2002, including 2011 winner of the highly prestigious Carl Nielsen Prize, Denmark’s largest cultural prize. The high technical and musical quality, the joy of playing, the powerful stage presence, and the fresh approach to familiar repertoire have all become trademarks for the Danish String Quartet.

What they do know is how to be an exceptional quartet, whatever repertory they play.
— Anthony Tommasini, The New York Times
