“They bring a freshness and energy plus a level of sheer accomplishment that I don’t ever remember hearing in these works.” —Gramophone

Since making its debut in 2002 at the Copenhagen Festival, the Danish String Quartet has become one of the most sought-after quartets in the world, earning numerous accolades, including being named winner of the 11th London International String Quartet Competition and securing coveted appointments with the Chamber Music Society of Lincoln Center’s highly regarded CMS Two program and with BBC Radio 3 as a New Generation Artist. The quartet was awarded the 2010 Nordmetall-Ensemble Prize at the Mecklenburg-Vorpommern Festival in Germany; the Carl Nielsen Prize, the highest cultural honor in Denmark, in 2011; and the 2016 Borletti-Buitoni Trust Award.
