The multi-award-winning Danish String Quartet, pictured, will play a strikingly powerful programme, including music from their homeland, in the Music In The Round series at Portsmouth’s New Theatre Royal next Friday (7.30pm).
Mozart’s Dissonance quartet takes its nickname from opening harmonies that were unusually tense for their time, and Beethoven’s late, great Op 127 quartet in E flat created a totally new sound world.
In between comes the energetic and dramatic Quartet in G minor by 20th century Danish composer Carl Nielsen.
The players established themselves on the international platform when winning five of the nine prizes – including the top award – at the 2009 London International String Quartet Competition.
