Danish String Quartet

LOTTA WENNÄKOSKI New Work (Bay Area Premiere, Cal Performances Co-commission)
SCHUBERT String Quartet in D minor, D. 810, Death and the Maiden

The dazzlingly gifted Danish String Quartet returns for its second Berkeley concert this season, pairing a Schubert string quartet with a newly commissioned work as part of its Doppelgänger project, a four-season initiative co-commissioned by Cal Performances. Schubert’s thrilling Death and the Maiden quartet, one of the pillars of chamber music repertoire, is matched here with its musical twin, a new quartet by Finnish composer Lotta Wennäkoski—“a composer with ideas and a distinctive way of voicing them” (The Guardian)—whose music combines a melodic sensibility with percussive techniques and timbres.

One of the best quartets before the public today” (The Washington Post), the Danish Quartet has rapidly become a Berkeley audience favorite, with performances selling out quickly—so get your tickets early!
