Photo Flash: Danish String Quartet Gives Pop-Up Performance at Manderley Bar
Last night the Danish String Quartet, the hottest young classical music group, were welcomed to New York in preparation for their upcoming Chamber Music Society of Lincoln Center concerts this Sunday at Alice Tully Hall and Monday at the Rose Studio, the Danish String Quartet enjoyed a night on the town. They began the evening by attending Broadway's After Midnight, featuring the Jazz at Lincoln Center All Stars. Following the performance, they went backstage to congratulate the orchestra on their performance before heading to the McKittrick Hotel. They got to experience the end of Sleep No More before their pop-up performance at the Manderley Bar, where they played a brief 15-minute set of Beethoven quartets and Scandinavian folk songs. BroadwayWorld brings you a look back at their performance below!
The Danish String Quartet is in the first year of a coveted three-year residency that it won to become part of CMS Two at the Chamber Music Society of Lincoln Center. Embodying the quintessential elements of a chamber music ensemble, the Danish String Quartet has established a reputation for possessing an integrated sound, impeccable intonation, and judicious balance. Since making its debut in 2002 at the Copenhagen Festival, the group of musical friends has demonstrated a passion for Scandinavian composers, who they frequently incorporate into adventurous contemporary programs, while also proving skilled and profound performers of the classical masters. Last season, the New York Times selected their concert as a highlight of the year: "One of the most powerful renditions of Beethoven's Opus 132 String Quartet that I've heard live or on a recording."
