Chamber Music & Orchestra

Danish String Quartet

Bent SØRENSEN New Work (US Premiere, Cal Performances Co-commission)
SCHUBERT String Quartet in G major, D. 887

The breathtaking Danish String Quartet returns for the first of two Berkeley concerts this season, pairing a Schubert string quartet with a newly commissioned work as part of its Doppelgänger project, a three-season initiative co-commissioned by Cal Performances. Schubert’s profound, probing final quartet in G major is matched here with its musical “double,” a new quartet by Danish composer Bent Sørensen, a winner of the prestigious 2018 Grawemeyer Award for Music Composition, whose work explores lush, post-Romantic colors and textures. 

In recent seasons, the Danish Quartet has rapidly become a Berkeley audience favorite, with performances selling out quickly—so get your tickets early!

“There’s a robust, heady kind of beauty at work in the playing of the Danish String Quartet…this formidable ensemble brings a wondrous blend of precision and full-bodied athleticism” (San Francisco Chronicle).
