Program:
Lotta Wennäkoski/New Work (Bay Area Premiere, Cal Performances Co-commission)
Schubert/String Quartet in D minor, D. 810, Death and the Maiden 

The 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 three-season initiative co-commissioned by Cal Performances. Schubert’s 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)
