Danish String Quartet

View video

The Danish String Quartet has reached incredible heights in the course of its existence. In 2011 the quartet was awarded the highly prestigious Carl Nielsen Prize, and 2012 the quartet was appointed to the prestigious Chamber Music Society of Lincoln Center Two programme beginning with the 2013-2014 season. They have also participated in our own chamber music competition TICC in 2005, where they won the audience prize! We are very proud to have our winners back as festival artists and instructors at TICC Academy in 2018, a whole 13 years later.

The high technical and musical quality, the joy of playing, the powerful impact the quartet makes on stage and the fresh approach to familiar repertoire has become a trademark for the Danish String Quartet. The four young musicians have performed all over Europe, returning repeatedly to particularly Germany and the UK, where Wigmore Hall is one of the venues, and now they finally come to Trondheim!
