The Danish String Quartet performance at the Broad Stage (originally set for October 8, 2021), has be rescheduled to September 16, 2021.

Here is a note from the Broad Stage: Due to delays in the visa process, the Danish String Quartet concert has been rescheduled from its original date & time to Saturday, OCT 16 at 3PM. We apologize for the inconvenience. Patrons with tickets to the originally scheduled date & time will be contacted starting Monday, OCT 4 regarding ticket options.

The Broad Stage, Santa Monica College Performing Arts Center, presents the Danish String Quartet, recipient of Musical America’s 2020 Ensemble of the Year, the Borletti-Buitoni Trust, and coveted appointments that include the Chamber Music Society of Lincoln Center’s CMS Two Program and the BBC Radio 3 New Generation Artists program. Danish String Quartet performs on Friday, October 16, at 3:00pm. This performance marks the return to live and in person performances at The Broad Stage.

Their eclectic repertoire includes the Mozart String Quartet No 16 in E-flat major, a Curated Suite of Dances including by Marc-Antoine Charpentier, John Adams, and Felix Blumenfeld, and a DSQ specialty — a selection of Nordic Folk Music – about which The New York Times said, “Most rare and interesting  there’s deep absorption, when players enter a kind of trance, a state of euphoric joy … for listeners, the world dissolves and we are carried along by sound. When at their best, their tone throbs with joy.”

Nordic folk music is the focus of Wood Works, an album of traditional Scandinavian folk music, released by Dacapo in 2014. As a follow-up, the Danish String Quartet released Last Leaf for ECM, an album of traditional Scandinavian folk music. This recording was one of the top classical albums of 2017, as chosen by NPR, Spotify and The New York Times, among others.

Rob Bailis, artistic and executive director of The Broad Stage said, ”The story of this string quartet is perhaps like none other, having been friends since boyhood and having arrived at a profound identity as an ensemble by the time they were in their teenage years -their creative and musical relationship is forged equally in lifelong friendship and the pursuit of a produced artistic vision.”
