The dazzling Danish String Quartet returns to complete its ambitious multiyear Doppelgänger Project, which has paired dynamic new commissions from leading composers with major works from Schubert’s chamber music repertoire. The quartet is joined by Johannes Rostamo, principal cellist in the Royal Stockholm Philharmonic Orchestra, for Schubert’s masterful, inventive String Quintet in C major. The works newly commissioned musical “twin” is a quintet by renowned British composer Thomas Adès. The Danish Quartet has a long relationship with Adès’ music, having recorded his Arcadiana quartet on its debut CD to great acclaim. “Thomas Adès turns fleetingly recognizable musical elements into unstable, volatile substances tending toward evanescence and escape…. He has invented new orchestral colors, and he’s taught us new ways to dance” (The New York Review).
