NIELSEN: Bohemian-Danish Folk Tune
(arr. Danish String Quartet)
SCHNITTKE: String Quartet No. 2
BEETHOVEN: String Quartet in E minor, Op. 59, No. 2

The Danish String Quartet has become an international sensation in recent years, winning over critics and audiences alike with its "technical command and playfulness, its abundance of sound, and ability to sing like a choir" (San Jose Mercury News). Besides programming the well-known staples of the repertory, the quartet also has an affinity for folk music and champions works by Scandinavian composers, here presenting an arrangement of the great Danish composer Carl Nielsen's bucolic Bohemian-Danish Folk Tune, offset by Alfred Schnittke's second quartet, a striking tribute to his Russian homeland. The program centerpiece is Beethoven's robust middle-period E-minor Quartet.
